    Nurturing Dreams and Friendships

    This beautifully bound book for children ages four thorough eight is illustrated by Claude Schneider. His large colorful illustrations combine time-honored realism with the basic elements of impressionism. Each picture dramatically enhances the text of the opposite page. The book is bi-lingual, written in English and Spanish. The story begins with Erin¿s dream of planting a vegetable garden. As the story progresses the reader is introduced to the importance of belief in one¿s dreams and of sharing and nurturing them. This is a story of an intergenerational friendship, of persistence, and patience. It is a story of the reward of industry and planning for the future. It is a story of learning new things and of the discovery of the magic of new friendships. There are fourteen new vocabulary words introduced that relate to the vegetable garden. A vocabulary list in English and Spanish make the book an excellent resource for cross cultural use. This is a delightful story packed with lessons on nurturing virtue and building valuable character. I recommend this book for both the school and home library. It is a book parents can read to their children or for a primer for early readers. Very well done and impressive.

    Tomatoes, peppers, dreams and recollections, mixed with soft illustrations, gives you a heartfelt read.

    The truth of the matter is, within the very first paragraph, although quite simple, the pull to find out what was going to happen had already captured me: ¿Erin jumped out of bed. She ran downstairs where her parents were eating breakfast. She couldn¿t wait to tell them about her garden dream.¿ Why was Erin so eager to describe this dream? Would this dream be achieved? How would her parents react? These and a few other questions popped in my head and I judged the author¿s capability to foresee questions she foreshadowed in her first paragraph and how they would come about in Vegetable Dreams. Dawn Jeffers did a superb job answering them and allowing me to reflect my own dreams and inspirations as Erin pursued her own. The book breezes along at a quick pace, and the bilingual aspect is truly educational for all, with a vocabulary index at the back. At times a book comes along with the notion it is only geared for children yet in Vegetable Dreams, its message and inclusion of an adult man¿s own family reflections truly aim to please both, the young and old at heart. The artist, Claude Schneider, manages to bring the story to life using soft, chalk-like drawings, bringing Dawn Jeffers¿ treasure Vegetable Dreams close to a reader¿s heart. I highly recommend this 32 page picture story book for all families to read and share.
