Thank you to Scholastic for sending our copy and providing a children’s book prize package for our readers.
Bedtime stories are big, am I right? Even when the day is stressful, nothing ends it on a better note than a few quiet moments of storytime. Lately, I’ve made it my mission to find children’s books that leave my kids with a sense of calm and positivity before drifting off. Nothing too heavy, but something that will leave them with lovely images in their mind and happy thoughts in their little heads. Happy Dreamer by Peter H. Reynolds is the latest book to hit our bookshelf, and I couldn’t be happier with how it makes us all feel at bedtime. Read on to see why…
Happy Dreamer: an Inspiring Children’s Book
Recently released and available now, Happy Dreamer is recommended for ages 4–8 (ours are 4 and 7, and they read this one together!)
In the same spirit as OH, ALL THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!, the beloved, worldwide bestselling creator of The Dot and Ish inspires readers of every age to find their own unique path to happy, and to always follow their dreams with HAPPY DREAMER.
Picture book and creativity guru Peter H. Reynolds helps kids (and parents!) explore and celebrate the full spectrum of what it means to dream and the many ways to find happy! Can you think of a better inspiration for sweet dreams at bedtime? Just being “you” is something we’ve been struggling with lately with our sensitive 7-year-old, and this book carries exactly the sweet affirmations he needs to hear.
And how’s this for a cool author photo?

BE A HAPPY DREAMER
‘While the world tells us to sit still, to follow the rules, and to color inside the lines, Happy Dreamer celebrates all those moments in between when the mind and spirit soar and we are free to become our own true dreamer maximus! In Peter’s signature voice and style, this empowering picture book reminds children of how much their dreams matter, and while life will have ups and downs, he enlists readers to stay true to who they are, to tap into their most creative inner selves, and to never ever forget to dream big!’
Just think of all the moments this book make the perfect gift: graduations, new babies, milestone moments, and any happy occasion throughout the year for any age! Grab this one now and start a tradition of having teachers sign it at the end of each year, or have friends write messages in it before your “little one” heads off to college. I get weepy just thinking about it!
Watch here and you’ll see what I mean.
