We've all wished to be like someone else, but there are lots of someone elses. How boring! There's only one you in the whole wide world, and that's awesome.
This 2-minute story is perfect for young children who enjoy silly rhymes. Listen at bedtime, during car rides, or anytime a little laughter is needed.

This episode is called I Wish...
I wish that I was taller,
So I could touch the sky.
I wish that I was smaller,
And ride a butterfly.
I wish that I was quicker,
So I could run real fast.
I wish that I was slower,
To make the summer last.
I wish my hair was curlier,
So very thick and lush
I wish my hair was straighter.
It’d be easier to brush.
I wish that I was older,
So I’d live on my own
I wish that I’d stay young.
Then I’d never be alone.
I wish that I wished less about
What I could or couldn’t be.
But it doesn’t really matter.
I got my wish. I’m me.
