My Wish for You by Kathryn Hahn and my 30 Wishes for Victoria

Disclosure: Sponsored posting with Scholastic. All opinions are 100% my own.

My Wish for You by Kathryn Hahn (yes, that one!), with pictures by Brigette Barrager, is a must-read for moms and daughters everywhere. I’m in the unique position right now where my 5-year-old daughter Victoria loves to read books with me. She’s just learning to identify sight words, so when we read … it’s still me reading to her. She hangs on to every single word, looking at the pictures in the book and really taking everything in. When we read My Wish for You aloud, she actually caught me tearing up, so it was cute having her hold me extra tight as I read. She knew the book was special, and I loved that about it.

My Wish for You: Lessons from My Six-Year-Old Daughter

My Wish for You is a beautiful book and was just released on September 25th.

My Wish for You: Lessons from My Six-Year-Old Daughter

The words not only tell a story, but they mean something. They mean something deep. They mean something heartfelt. They mean something beautiful. It’s a love note to your daughter. It’s a promise and a wish for her throughout her life. I truly was taken by this book and really thought it was extraordinary.

One of the best lines in the book reads…

My Wish for You: Lessons from My Six-Year-Old Daughter

“My wishes for you are many. But the top of the wishes: I want you to be you. And wherever you go, I hope you will always remember the YOU that you are right now.”

Inspired by the everyday life lessons of raising her own six-year-old daughter, author and actress Kathryn Hahn creates a heartfelt and touching meditation on the inherent power every girl has deep inside herself. Here is a timely and necessary message of the intrinsic importance of being who you are, no matter what the world tells you. To be curious, strong, and vulnerable. To live life on your own terms. To always look for that sparkle!

With moving illustrations by New York Times bestselling artist Brigette Barrager and a personal letter to readers, My Wish for You is an empowering gift for grandmothers and mothers, daughters and friends, to treasure and cherish for years to come.

This is a perfect gift for that special girl in your life. Whether it’s your mom, your daughter, your grandma, your niece or your best friend … this book will leave a lasting impression. It made me stop and think about my own wishes for my Victoria. I thought it would be fun to list some of my personal wishes for my own girl…
