This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of I Wish I Was Tall Like Willie. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book.Manuel goes to elaborate and comical lengths to be tall like Willie. He thinks being tall makes his best friend Willie look like a basketball star. In the quest to be tall, Manuel comes up with a multitude of ingenious ways of getting there. What one person might dislike about themselves may be just the thing that someone else would envy. Manuel grows in appreciation of his own uniqueness. 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.
