Thank you @Scholastic for sending me a copy and providing the prize pack!
Maybe it is the dreamer in me, but this book really spoke to me. I love the freedom we have to be who we are. The freedom we have to dream. This is a lesson that I am always trying to teach my kids so I loved being able to read this story to my daughter and help her to see and of the different ways to dream. I have a very independent daughter and not only did this book help her to dream, but it helped me to better understand her as a dreamer. This book is a lot of fun, the illustrations are beautiful and it teaches a great lesson to all those who read it.
