A Drop of Hope by Keith Calabrese

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐✰✰

According to town legend, there was a time when wishes made at the old wishing well would be granted. Things are looking a bit bleak in town these days and more and more people are visiting the well with hopeful wishes. Why these wishes suddenly start being granted again is a mystery to most (but not all) of the towns people.

This was a sweet story that the kids enjoyed quite a bit. I loved the story but found the pace to be a bit slow. 

Enjoyable by kids and parents: More so by the kids
Kids chose reading over extra screen time: Sometimes
Offensive Language: No
Violence: Some - there was talk about beating someone up and there was an incident of domestic violence when a child is hit with a belt.
Age Range: 8 and up
