nueva jr. and illustrated by Edmund
o Sanchez, Caleb’s Birthday Wish br
ings us a wonderful, freckle-faced
8-year-old boy in a wheelchair that
 wanted very much to fly. Caleb goe
s on a fun and exciting balloon tri
p where he is briefly caught in a t
ree, had a slight alligator scare,
enjoyed a chimpanzee race, met a sn
eezing giraffe and had a close call
 with a zooming jet. Finally, aided
 by friendly ducks (and his powerfu
l birthday wish) Caleb finds his wa
y back to the birthday party that i
s still going strong in his back yard.

The last few pages are well designe

ch. 40-pages are filled with a ligh

ere with him throughout the tale –

self.

yed reviewing this book…
