5 Minutes for Books‘ reviewer and children’s literature super-fan Dawn is happy to be working with Scholastic to bring you a new picture book by New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds. Be sure to check out the prize pack giveaway worth over $100 at the end!
Peter H. Reynolds is known for creating picture books with a heart, and his best-selling books offer young readers recognition and affirmation. With his newest, Happy Dreamer, he continues this tradition and encourages children to listen to their inner voice. Add this title to the list of picture books that make for whimsical graduation gifts for kids of all ages!
A happy dreamer is creative and always full of ideas. Whether on the move or taking a moment of quiet, happy dreamers follow their heart and acknowledge their uniqueness. Peter H. Reynolds has created a celebration of this spirit in this colorful picture book featuring one of his signature drawn characters, full of life and happiness. Watch the official book trailer below to experience the joy for yourself.
I quite like the fold-out pages near the end of the book that give dozens of illustrated examples of different types of “happy” and various kinds of “dreamers.” These pages encourage children and the adults reading with them to engage in conversations about what makes each of them happy, and it’s likely everyone involved will learn a little more about each other!
Whether you’ve got a dreamer in your life ready to embark on their next chapter, or you just want to share a joyful read with a child, this is a perfectly fun picture book for the occasion.
