What If ...

It's time for bed. But before he falls asleep, our narrator wants his mom (and us) to see all of the things he is imagining. From teddy bears that fly to snowflakes that taste like ice cream, this is the stuff of dreams.

This is a perfect book for children who LOVE to delay going to sleep, whether it's a fear of the dark or fear of bad dreams. The images will push all of that away.

Content Awareness Factors:

None!
