“What would I wish for?” Annika wondered aloud. “If ever I had the almond in my pudding what would be my wish?”
In turn-of the-century Sweden, finding the almond hidden in the rice pudding is the Christmas Eve highlight for many children, since it means a chance to wish a new pair of snowshoes, a mountain of truffles coated with cocoa, an adorable kitten. For ten long years–all of her life–Annika has dreamed of discovering the almond in her own pudding. Will this be her year?
A beautiful book that will become part of your family’s Christmas heritage, Annika’s Secret Wish inspires young and old to freely give and share even long hoped-for gifts. The final page features Swedish Christmas traditions that your family may choose to include in your own holiday celebration. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
