Thank you Scholastic for providing me a copy of Happy Dreamer for review!
Great new book alert! Have you ever given the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh The Places You'll Go, as a gift? It's the perfect, inspirational gift for a loved one who is ending one phase of life and starting another making it an easy choice for baby showers and graduations of all stages from kindergarten to college. Happy Dreamer by Peter H. Reynolds is sure to become the same classic and inspirational book gift for generations to come.
This book is all about possessing the bravery to put real value in your dreams, whatever they may be, and putting those dreams into action to live a happy life. I like that the story emphasizes that not every person's path to living out their happy is going to lead in the same direction. We all follow our dreams in different ways. This is such a helpful message to give kids today in a world that makes it very easy to compare ourselves to others, measuring their success next to ours. We all reach our goals differently and on different time lines. Happy Dreamer promotes love and the freedom to live a creative life.
I was so excited when I was approached to participate in the launch of Happy Dreamer because my kids and I are big, big fans of Peter H. Reynolds and his work. The Dot and Ish are both faves at my house. So, when Happy Dreamer came in the mail, we ripped the box open and immediately sat down to read it. My four year old loved the colorful pictures and fun story. I loved the encouraging message.
