Book of Dreams sees Baby Raccoon’s parents use clouds to share their dreams of a better future. In the story, Mama and Papa use clouds to share their dreams about a healthy planet and vibrant future for Baby Ringtail. In the book, Baby Ringtail asks Mama and Papa, “Why is every cloud a different shape?” “Clouds are pictures in the sky that help us dream,” Mama Ringtail replies.
“Clouds are pictures in the sky that help us dream,” said Mama.
“Every cloud holds a different dream for your tomorrows,” said Papa.
“What kind of dreams?” asked Baby.

My take on this book:
Book of Dreams by Sylvie Michaud is such a delightful little book with well done illustrations that will capture a youngsters attention and imagination as well. Smoothly written,a story that  puts youngsters in the right frame of mind for snuggling and winding down as they hear about Baby Raccoon and his mama and papa, with a positive that will have them dreaming about the planet. I can imagine this book could easily become a favorite bedtime ritual. I was excited to learn that this book is part of The Ringtail Family Collection and look forward to reading other books in the series. Anyone looking for a unique read filled with wonderful illustrations and an easy to relate to story will find this a delight to share with a favorite child or grandchild.
