“Growing Up Dreams,” by Susan J. Berger, illustrated by Samantha Bell, is a delightful, rhyming picture book about a little girl’s big, wonderful, and wild daydreams about what she’ll do when she grows up. She shares her growing up dreams with her two cats, Quentin and Quigley. Her dreams are little girl dreams of living in a tree house, eating ice cream for breakfast, staying up late, having her own store, and her own zoo. She tells her cats she’ll wear what she wants when she wants, and she’ll do what she wants. She’ll live in a magical world, with flying and dancing, no rules, and no homework. My favorite part is the end where she says she’ll use all her power to make people happy, give them good things, and she’ll share all of her dreams with her Mommy and Daddy. Artist Samantha Bell has captured the magic of this little girl’s dreams in her colorful and playful artwork. Ms. Bell brings this sweet story to life with images that will entertain and touch both children and parents. The values of caring, helping, and sharing are beautifully presented in word and image. This is a great book for bedtime stories and read alouds. I highly recommend it for children ages 4 through 7.

I am quoting Janet Ann Collin's Review Unlike many rhyming picture books, this one doesn't have any strained attempts to keep the rhythm and rhyme going, but that's not what makes the book so good. It carries the reader away into the dream world of a little girl with a wonderful imagination. When I was a kid I had similar ideas and lots of children probably have dreams like the girl in the story. I have a feeling the author got the idea for the book from memories of her own imaginative childhood. She grew up to become an actress and creative writer, so at least some of her dreams have come true. The illustrations by Samantha Bell are a perfect match for the words. I'm sure lots of kids will love this book and, who knows? Maybe it will help them use their imaginations so they can achieve some of their own dreams when they grow up. Posted by Janet Ann Collins
