Dream Animals by Emily Wingfield Martin
In a stunning collection of soft yet enticing illustrations, Emily Wingfield Martin takes us on a journey to our dreams. She creates a landscape in which children travel to their dreams via animals. Where these animals take them varies, but the end result is always a new adventure for a sleeping child.
Realizing Martin wrote and illustrated the story left me aghast. Her talent is evident in her beautiful imagery that parallels a dream state, but the story itself is also engaging and allows children to explore their imagination.
Dreams are such a mysterious entity for adults and children alike. Martin presents an exciting alternative to discovering how dreams could function through her illustrations and storyline. This is the perfect read for a bedtime story and one that will definitely become a staple in any household.
