Dream

Dream has won 10 national awards: * International Reading Association Children’s Choice — 10,000 children across the country vote on the books they like best! * Teachers’ Choice * Pinnacle Award — Best Gift Book * Benjamin Franklin Award — Best Book Celebrating the Human Spirit * Independent Publisher Award — Best Children’s Book * ForeWord Book of the Year Award — Children’s * American Booksellers Association Book Sense Children’s Pick * Children’s Book Center — Starred “Our Choice” * iParenting Award * Adding Wisdom Award

15 of the top illustrators in the world each offer a gorgeously illustrated page in a beautifully told poetic story about life’s hopes and dreams from childhood to adulthood, inspiring both children and adults.

From the smallest personal beginnings to the largest human triumphs, why are we here if not to dream? As you open the Dream Chest, you’re whisked away on a colorful journey of a lifetime. WHOOSH through the teddy bears and castles of childhood. WHOOSH again into the labyrinths and mountains of adolescence and adulthood. Richly detailed contemporary art, thought-provoking quotations from historical sages, and a multilayered story combine to convey a simple yet powerful message — you’re never too young or too old to dream.

“Dream: A Tale of Wonder, Wisdom & Wishes” is a one-of-a-kind collaboration five years in the making. Bestselling author Susan V. Bosak (Something to Remember Me By, Science Is…) has teamed with fifteen internationally-acclaimed illustrators — including winners of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and Caldecott Medal. You’ll find original illustrations by Wayne Anderson, James Bennett, Christian Birmingham, Raúl Colón, Leo and Diane Dillon, Robert Ingpen, Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, Michèle Lemieux, Barbara Reid, Shaun Tan, and more.

Don’t forget to hunt for the star each artist has hidden in their illustration — and make a new wish with each one you find! Teachers can get classroom-tested reading tips and activities to use with “Dream” at legacyproject.org.

This is an inspiring celebration of living and dreaming for all ages. It’s a book to explore and discuss with children, a keepsake and collector’s item, and a lovely gift book for milestones like a birth or graduation, the holidays and birthdays. “Dream” offers wonder, wisdom, and good wishes — for everyone who dreams.

  1. Beautifully depicts the importance of having a dream A semi-finalists in the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Awards!We are never too young or old to have dreams and pursue them; dreams are a necessary part of life. What we do with them, however, is our choice. “There’s a whole world to conquer and you know exactly what you want: to make your own way…and make a mark on the world.” The text takes us from the dreams of childhood to those of old age, relating that a successful life is about discovering and acting upon all the possibilities within us. Outstanding motivational quotations by noted historical figures are featured on each spread. The author enlisted the aid of 15 award-winning illustrators, whose work enriches the story and shows the power of art to inspire.[...]

  2. An Awesome Book “What a beautiful book! As a syndicated columnist, I get more than 20 books a day — every day — and I must say I was wonderfully surprised by this incredible book. It’s unlike anything else I’ve seen come across my desk. It’s not just a book — it’s an opportunity to be inspired, learn, and to grow. This is an awesome book. I would highly recommend it for parents and grandparents to share with children, and for adults looking for a meaningful gift for anyone they care about.”
