What Do Kids Really Wish For? (video)

It is the time of year when kids are making a lot of wishes. I want to share a fun family video project, “What Do Kids Wish For?” Happy Holidays!

This video is inspired by my mother, Jeanne Betancourt’s, children’s book “Ava Tree and the Wishes Three” and was shot in my daughter’s school, PS 333 in a friend’s 3rd grade class. My husband, Bray Poor, did the music. Jeanne Betancourt is the author of many award-winning books for children and young adults, including Pony Pals, a chapter book series that has sold more than ten million worldwide.

What did you wish for when you were a kid? Did it come true?

That goes to show that kids' wishes' are quite different from what Big Industry wants us (and them) to believe.

3 cheers for our kids!!!!

They want to be left alone; stop getting them invovled in terrible things like divorce, pornography, wars. Leave them alone, they are just kids.
