“A tender ode to a family’s ever changing (and neverending) love” (Kirkus Reviews, starred)
I’LL MEET YOU IN YOUR IN YOUR DREAMS by Jessica Young is a heartwarming picture book with visually striking art by bestselling and award-winning artist Rafael López, that makes the perfect baby gift.
Each evening when the sun has set, as nighttime casts a starry net, I’ll hitch a ride on moonbeams, and meet you in your dreams.
This poetic and tender story celebrates the parent-and child bond in its many forms and offers gentle assurance of love across a lifetime. Two parents’ dreams of the future with their children—from early dependence for nourishment and basic needs, to the parent as home base for a child in later life—mirror an always-changing but unbreakable relationship.
Written in lyrical rhyme and accompanied by breathtaking art, I’ll Meet You in Your Dreams affirms that parental love is a constant force, transcending boundaries of space and time.
This is a lovely picture book that will age with a child and shares an important message of bonding and love, that their parent will always be there for them, no matter what they dream or become. It also allows for the play and pretending that is so important to children to develop and I love the positive feelings that come from simple poetry. The illustrations are a perfect match for the words.
