What to Expect: Bedtime Story, Rhyme, and Watercolor Illustrations
What Wonders Do You See … When You Dream? is a sweet picture book that aims to help young readers find the alluring promise of what sleep can bring.
The narrative encourages kids to take time to transition from their busy days with a familiar routine of packing up toys, donning PJs, and brushing teeth. The rhyming text then has readers notice the wonders in their lives and how their imaginations can soar once they settle in with a relaxed mind.
Blissfully playful illustrations in pretty mauves and blues combine with the charming story to lull readers with a delightfully rhythmic beat. The soft lines of the watercolor images work so well to convey a dreamy experience. The author’s own energetic wonder of what the world can hold for you if you choose to seek it out shines through.
This picture book shows readers that sleeping is indeed something to look forward to! That’s a definite plus for us! The fantastical feel is sure to inspire young dreamers and explorers.
