Dreaming of You

We rated this book:


Little ones often seem to have fear of going to sleep. This enchanting picture book will help smooth the way for the youngest of children to find comfort in falling asleep. This sweet rhyming book will ease little ones into a peaceful place to find their slumber. Children are gently wished to dream animal dreams — those dreams that animals have — so that the child will see what the animals see in their dreams. This is followed by a series of poems about what animals might dream. Turtles dream of cool, muddy beds and learning to run. Robins dream of fine, twiggy nests and swooping through the air. Tadpoles dream of wiggly tails and jumping on lily pads. Even fireflies have dreams — dark summer meadows and flitting and flickering. Bunnies, kittens, horses, and more fill the pages with charming, fresh rhyming stanzas with soft meters that will lull little ones to sleep. Books featuring Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s poetry are always a cause for celebration. This is no exception. Her poetry is simply perfect. The enchanting illustrations by Aaron DeWitt are the perfect complement to the sweet poems. This book is destined to become a classic in the world of bedtime books.
