A charming read-aloud bedtime book for toddlers 

With its sweet bedtime rhymes, I Dream a Dream for You resembles the classic title The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton. A family of red pandas make their home in the forest. When it's time for bed, Mom and Dad tuck in their three kiddos, and as they all drift to sleep, dreams come to life through the vibrant pictures and story. Parents or grandparents will enjoy reading this sweet bedtime rhyme, filled with dreams and aspirations for their little ones. With amazing, colorful illustrations, this read-to-me story richly shows the love of a faith-filled family with creative, interesting scenes that kids will love to see over and over--and those who read it to them will experience the blessing of God's love, which is meant to be shown and shared with families

My Thoughts

We love reviewing children's books in our house and I say we because as soon as they come in my younger kiddos (9, 10) immediately grab them and want to read them or want me to read it to them.  If you are still in the stage of reading before bed this would be the perfect addition to your house. The illustrations are so cute and the size is perfect for little hands to hold and tote around the house. In this bedtime story the mama and daddy red pandas are letting the kids know what their dreams are for them as they grow up. Listen, as a mom of teenagers as well I was emotional over this one. As parents we definitely want our kids to grow up and accomplish their dreams and especially as Christian parents we want them to not only accomplish those dreams but do them as they also grow in God. 

We really enjoyed this book and it would be perfect for preschool aged kiddos. This would also make a great gift for a new mom or baby shower gift.
