While reading these poems, I found myself dreaming right along with the author! The ideas expressed in the poems are so open-ended that I felt encouraged to make my own pictures as I read. In a world where we tend to paint pictures for our kids instead of letting them imagine, this book has the opposite effect. All of the poems should work well with kids because the poems express a jumping off point, not an ending point. I think the illustrations had exactly that effect - not too much information in the pictures so that there is room for the child to create his/her own visions elicited by the poems. This is a great book to use as a springboard for children who want to create their own poetry and their own illustrations.

This book was so enjoyable to read not only for my 2 kids, but also enjoyable to me! The poems are witty and clever, and the illustrations that go along with it are creative and funky, but inspire imaginative thinking. My kids have wanted to read it over and over again! Great poems and part of the proceeds go to a scholarship fund. I don't regret buying this book at all and would HIGHLY recommend it!

I loved these poems and really enjoyed reading each and every one! These poems not only provide fun and adventure as you read them, but a lot of great information about our solar system, the sun, Galileo, Atlantis, camels, and much more! These poems would be a great addition or a great jumping-off point when introducing one of these topics to children. The illustrations were beautifully done as well (my favorite was "The Sun" - gorgeous!). Robin is a very talented author and we are lucky enough to have her coming to our school next month to share some of these poems with students - looking forward to it!

Travels of the Mind
WHEN I DREAM
BY
ROBIN LANDRY

Stories and myths are worthwhile whenever they carry inside themselves a deep truth.
In "When I Dream", the author transmits an educational message with rhymed verses.
Throughout this story children learn how important prudence is.
The story "Ima Princess and the terrible Dragon, teaches us how often we are afraid of things we don't know. The algebra is symbolized by a frightening beast; it burns Ima's brain. But once we learn the mathematic language, it does not threat us anymore, furthermore it is useful and important in our life.
Robin Landry easily finds ways to express the immensity of universe, the position of our planet in the solar system and in our Galaxy, the black holes, and the difference between weight and mass.
The stories and suitable for children and adults. Easy to read. They convey the reader in a surreal atmosphere, in another dimension where the soul or mind soars beyond the material world.
The universe and its mysteries is in the air which pervades the book.
Sometimes the scientific discovers contrast with religious beliefs. The author tells it in a vivid way how Galileo was obliged to abjure for not being burned at the stake.
Particularly educative is the story of the Atlanteans who believed to be the owners of the world, but they froze their hearts, they were so powerful that they thought to be like God, but doing like that the mighty Atlantis went down.
This book is for everybody, its language is universal.

I enjoyed reading these striking poems about the algebra monster, space, light, radio waves, sun, universe and many more. These would be a great tool for teachers to bring fun into their subjects and also inspire the children to write their own poetry.
I liked how the author used a poem about Graffiti to make children see that there is always a better way; rather study art than painting on walls.
The descriptive poem on Atlantis would be my favourite; within one poem the reader can see what Atlantis looked like through the eyes of the author and form a good idea of what happened to the ancient city.
