 My Review

Book of Dreams a delightful way to share with your little ones. Using the darling raccoons Mama, Papa, and baby point out how different clouds look. Looking up at the different shapes and preparing to dream about what they look like.
My boys love this game, and were delighted with when this book reminded of all the different ones they have looked at. When Mama Ringtail stated that clouds are pictures in the sky that help us dream, the boy’s whole-heartedly agreed.
As we went through this little book the boys got very excited and couldn’t wait to go outside and dream about what they were looking at. They wanted to see if they could see the never-ending green forests and the mighty brown grizzly bears. Now that ambition to be sure, and love that they have these goals, as they set about their own dream adventures.

I received this book through Pump Up Your Book Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
