Overview

Dreams are tantalizing, illusive, frustrating, and vitally important. People have tried to catch them, and their meanings, since the earliest times. Dr. Patricia Garfield, one of North America’s foremost authorities on dreams, knows the importance of dreams to our waking lives. Dream Catcher is not only fascinating reading about sleep, and practices to ensure good sleep drawn from lore around the world, but it is an enticing invitation to begin the habit of recording dreams within its very covers.

One of the most important ways to explore dream territory is to keep a dream journal. Dr. Garfield has kept her own dream journal for over fifty years!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Adolescents can now benefit from Patricia Garfield's thirty years of dream study. She has been keeping a dream journal since she was 14 years old. Dreams are a window on hidden thoughts and feelings and can be useful tools in knowing oneself. This volume is one half discussion about dreams, what they may mean and how to remember and understand them and one half empty journal in which to catch or record dreams. Prepare for sleep surrounded by dream charms and objects than induce relaxation. Keep the dream journal right by the bed for easy access in the morning. There are basic dream themes, but personal understanding is based on an evaluation of what is happening in a person's life in relationship to the dreams. Dreams have fascinated humans for a very long time. Even as far back as prehistoric times, humans may have used stones to protect themselves at night and induce good dreams. Egyptians had gods that protected them as they slept. The key to remembering dreams is making an effort on first awaking and then writing them down immediately. 2003, Tundra Books, Ages 8 up.
