Adapted by Alvaro Saar Rios
From the book by Matt de la Peña

When Carmela wakes up on her birthday, her wish has already come true–she’s finally old enough to join her big brother as he does the family errands! Traveling through their neighborhood, Carmela finds a lone dandelion growing in the pavement. Before she can blow its white fluff away, her brother tells Carmela she has to make a wish. But how will she pick just the right wish? Join us for this moving story about family, dreamers, and finding hope in the most unexpected places.
