From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wonderful Things You Will Be comes the companion to Dream Animals -- a celebration of the imagination of children who dream both day and night!
Emily Winfield Martin shows little ones that letting their imaginations run free will lead them into fantastical day dreams. Whether cloud-gazing or wandering through a museum, reading a book or playing in a tide pool, the children in this board book encounter magical creatures such as dragons, unicorns, griffins, and jackalopes. Whimsical rhyming text accompanies the dream-worthy illustrations.

"Each ordinary scene is contrasted with what the imagination can make of it . . .adding to the overall argument that one’s own brain contains the most magnificent wonders." --Booklist
