Overview

Terple is a courageous and imaginative young turtle that always dreams bigger. "Terple - Always Dream Bigger" is the second installment in the Terple series by award winning author and illustrator, Richie Frieman. "Terple - Always Dream Bigger" is a goodnight/bed time, rhyming picture book, that shows parents expressing their love and dreams for their child. "Terple - Always Dream Bigger" won The 2012 Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award for Best Poetry and Rhyme book, as has been awarded the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

In "Terple - Always Dream Bigger" Terple does not want to go to sleep, and would rather play. Who can blame him, right? However, knowing that Terple needs to rest so he can have new adventures tomorrow, his parents write him a goodnight letter that tells Terple how much they love him. In this letter, Terple is reminded how important he is to them, how proud they are of him and most importantly how you have to dream bigger if you want all your wishes to come true. We are told, "Look to the stars, then close your eyes, breathe in deep and realize... If you wish enough and see it through, that wish you wished, will come true."

We learn in this book, that there is no roof to dreaming, and no limitations. Every child's dream can be a reality, and every child should have the proper chance to fulfill it. After all, as Terple's parents write:
"Before one more kiss and one more hug, Before the last goodnight is said and done. Before you laugh so loud you shake the trees, Then swim in a rainbow of fallen leaves. Before hope gives you strength to move your feet, Before you know it's hope that makes the heart beat."

It's through this letter, that author and illustrator, Richie Frieman writes his own letter to his three year old daughter Madilyn. It's his love for her, and how she has inspired him to never give up on his dreams, that has allowed Frieman to create Terple.
