Imagination and creativity are redefined in this personalized children’s book centred around your child as the starlet of the story. 

In the yawns of sleep, with the glitters of stars and the moon, rest creates the start of a magical land where dreams live. Dreamland whispers sleepy, soothing rhymes for your little hooman. Candies, elephants, fairies and kites have a place in this magical land where memories become what you want them to be. This is Dreamland for you and your little one settling down for a magical and restful night’s sleep. 

In the rhymes nestled on each page of Dreamland, every flip brings something new to shape your child’s dreams. Here are five takeaways for you and your little hooman:

1. Dreams are limitless

Adulting as a big hooman can leave you limited in your dreams and your aspirations, but luckily, Dreamland reminds your child that dreams are limiteless. The magic of flights in fantasies about a hill or a train or “wherever you want it to be” is a gentle reminder to keep that shining light on as little hoomans read about the choo-choo train. They can be limitless for the tomorrows that come after sleeping in the night.

2. There’s always a place for you in the world 

Like the chugs of a train, rolling through life can leave you lost as a hooman. But Dreamland whispers about a “special” place that is “magical.” With only one key, this place is only for you, only for your little one. This can be the beginning of teaching little ones about the magic of saving a place for themselves in this world.

3. Your little one’s imagination is magical 

The magic of Dreamland goes only as far as your imagination. Snugly resting in this land are goblins and fairies waiting for the make-believe world of your child. There is an adventure to be had, a playground for the little hoomans who visit. Like enchanting fairytales, Dreamland is full of wonderful and magical things like fairies

4. Bedtime stories create the perfect environment for a restful night

Dreamland is full of many things” that await your little princes and princesses. Dreamland is a wonderfully knot story that sets the stage for a restful night of sleep. Like the boats and coats that swim together, the art of a story is whatever the child wants it to be, of things “old and new”, “forgotten”, and “remembered.”

5. In the end, Dreamland is for Sleep 

With teddy bears, prayers, hugs, and kisses, before slipping off to blissful sleep, Dreamland
speaks to the importance of rest. In a world shaken with many unpleasant things, Dreamland helps your child believe in the magic of dreams and restore the power of a good night’s sleep. 

Activities to do with your child:

1) Find Your Name! – The beautiful illustrations in Dreamland have your child’s name on each page with huge, easy-to-read fonts. Can your child spot and count the number of times their name appears in the book?

2) Name the Things Mentioned! – Dreamland has boats and coats, elephants and bees, and so many things in between! Name the things you see, like counting sheep before sleep.

3) Stories in a Dream – With goblins and fairies in the book, can your child narrate the dreams they have had in their sleep too? Note them down in a Dream journal!

Sue Says:

The beautiful illustrations of carnivals, skies covered with coats, and houses on a hill, are entertaining for the senses and the imagination. Children need a lullaby-like book for sleep, and this tale is a beautiful start to begin that journey.
