The Book of Dreams features a family of raccoons named Mama, Papa, and Baby. In the story, Mama and Papa use clouds to share their dreams about a healthy planet and vibrant future for Baby Ringtail.
In the book, Baby Ringtail asks Mama and Papa, "Why is every cloud a different shape?" "Clouds are pictures in the sky that help us dream," Mama Ringtail replies.
In this story, the planet becomes a place where children can target their hopes. Being too cool to care about earth doesn't bode well for the future. Hopefully, if they get the idea at a young age, it will stick!
The audience for this picture book ranges from babies to preschool age children. It's a special time for babies, young children and adults to connect and later for young children to read the story themselves and take in the message of the book at a deeper level.
