This was such an adorable book I read with my son who is six. He loved the illustrations that are in the book. It kept him interested all throughout. Because he was wanting a brand new book for me to read to him at bedtime, and this was the one for sure! My son always wondered about what a dream was. Sometimes he would wake up, and be scared. This book was able to help him understand more. Now he is no longer afraid anymore. Bless the author for making this book! I recommend this book to other p ...more

Dreamy Read

What a sweet story that not only explains what dreams are but let's our imaginations run free. The illustrations are beautifully done with attention to detail. I liked the focus on certain vocabulary words and the way the author highlights them for the reader. Worth the read!

Nice Bedtime Story

I think children would enjoy this book at bedtime. A sweet little girl named Ari is ready for bed. After getting a pleasant surprise from her little dog Pepper, we see the delightful time she has explaining dreams to Pepper. The story is written in prose, which to me, adds more enjoyment to the story. Nice story for bedtime! The illustrations are nice.

A dreamy book

This little girl expresses herself so wonderfully. As the reader I can imagine all of the ways dreams come alive. The rhyming is fun and so is her companion. A fun and vibrant story!

Love Ari’s shock when she discovers her dog can talk. It’s Ari’s dog Pepper who asks the probing questions about dreams - what are they, their taste, or how they feel & more. Love the rhymes. The end is so sweet - it’s my favorite ending.

Rhyming book

Very cute story which is basically a dialog between a girl and her dog. They both discuss what dreams are and how you can go anywhere in your dreams. The dog is so convinced that she wants to go on a dream! Great book!

Nice Inspirational

This book was very inspirational and brings perspective to children. I also like the poetry aspect of it. We all can dream and take our minds on some magical adventures. It's important to know that are dreams might not be the same.
