Review: Dream Animals: A Bedtime Journey by Emily Winfield Martin

Genre: Children's Picture Books


Summary from Goodreads

Ideal for bed time reading, this book will appeal to parents and children who love Grandfather Twilight and On the Night That You Were Born. Author, illustrator, and creator of The Black Apple Etsy shop, Emily Martin convinces children to close their eyes and discover who their dream animal might be—and what dream it might take them to. With a perfect nighttime rhyme and gorgeous illustrations, this book is irresistible.
I bought this book on the whim for my little boy and was very pleasantly surprised. In it's basic it is a lovely bedtime story, great for that bed time reading. The premise is, when the children go to sleep, what will their dream animal be and what kind of a dream will it carry them too. Love the rhyming of the storytelling, the writing is lovely and the illustrations are simply beautiful. I really enjoyed it myself and will be adding this book to our night time collections reading. So glad I discovered Martin and her creative storytelling. I will be adding more of her delightful books to my collection soon! Maybe even gifting one to my niece for her birthday :)
