Celebrate the Joy and Wonder of Nature in the Second Titled of My Dream For You Series
We read books to our girls each night before bed. It’s a great way to wind down after a hectic day and we like relaxing books that help children drift off to dreamland. The “My Dream For You” series of books is designed to capture that covenant between child and parent, exploring the possibilities from both perspectives. The books are not “once upon a time” stories from a child’s viewpoint, but a journey for the parent and child together in contentment, joy and wonder. These books were created to instill a sense of peace and gratitude for the parent and child in those magical moments at bedtime, planting soothing seeds of serenity for a good night’s sleep, and reminding that special child each night how much they are loved.
Lovingly written by Carole Ann Hausman and playfully illustrated by Joanne Raptis. This 32-pages of full color hardcover is about finding joy in discovering the magnificence of the world and creates a bonding experience for parent and child to read together. I love the quote of Albert Einstein in the front of the book, which states, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Being curious and full of wonder leads to discovery. The words in this book are so right on for parents, that I think it should be a required parenting read! Life is about adventures and discovery and if you aren’t excited about something, you probably won’t pursue it. I don’t have any specific dreams of what I want my children to do when they are adults, but I do want them to be happy and full of wonder so that they follow their passions and continue to be fascinated by the life that surrounds us. Excellent read!
Up Next! The next book in the My Dream for You series will be released in 2018!
