My Thoughts: Wish Bear makes a new friend with a newly fallen star. His friend is a wishing star, so out of the kindness of his heart, Wish Bear tries to make the other Care Bears's lives easier by wishing things for them. Unfortunately these wishes do not turn out as planned. The unhappy Care Bears beg Wish Bear not to make more wishes. Rejected, Wish Bear wishes for friends who want more wishes ... and that's when things get complicated.

Parts of this little story hit home for me. As little Wish Bear learns that sometimes working hard for things pays off. And when you only wish, you don't get what you aimed for.
