Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

What is a dream?  This sweet storybook attempts to answer that question.  Ari explains her interpretation to her talking dog Pepper. 

"Hmmm where do I start?

A dream is a place where you go in your mind,

But it lives inside of your heart."

They go on to discuss the magic of dreams.  They start with a wish, evoke curiosity, determine you can dream both day and night, and show how you can explore them using your senses.   

This rhyming book (some of the rhymes are awkward as they don't flow smoothly as you read them aloud ) touts cartoonish, vibrant, colourful illustrations that kids will love.  This is the second book in the "Let's Go Dreaming" series.  The book offers a cuddly quiet time that can prompt a good night's sleep.  Sweet dreams!
