The I Wish series (I Wish I Was Tall Like Willie, I Wish I Was Strong Like Manuel, I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa, I Wish I Had Freckles Like Abby) explores the issues of self–esteem, self–acceptance and friendship for children. Kids are reminded to like themselves “just the way they are!” through humorous situations and outlandish schemes.

I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa (English-only)
Abby concocts comical and innovative strategies to get glasses. She thinks glasses make her best friend Rosa look beautiful. In the quest to have glasses like Rosa, Abby invents a multitude of ingenious ways to getting the glasses she so dearly desires. What one person might dislike about themselves may be just the thing that someone else would envy. Abby grows in appreciation of her own uniqueness.

I Wish I Freckles Like Abby (English-only and Bilingual)
Rosa wants freckles just like her friend Abby. How can she get them? Maybe chocolate pudding will do the trick! How about some mud puddle dots? Big sister's makeup? Rosa comes to realize that she might have something that is just as good as the longed–for freckles.

During a casual conversation about New Year's resolutions, Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook discovered they shared a common dream—writing for children. Kathryn is an elementary school psychologist and when she's not writing, she can be found cooking, sewing, or golfing. Deborah is a kindergarten teacher, a volunteer at the Humane Society, and an avid Harley motorcyclist.

Bonnie Adamson began illustrating children's books after a career as a freelance publications designer and editor. She works from her studio at home in South Carolina and continues to be inspired by her two grown–up daughters.
