I just read this book online at the recommendation of a coworker (both this and the other book the author wrote are available to read in their entirety for free online). It is the most touching, sweet, beautiful kid's book I've ever read. As a dad in my 40s I felt inspired to revisit my dreams after reading it and I know it will--and I say this without a trace of hyperbole--greatly affect the life of my little boy in a wonderful way.

I've told my 4yo almost every night that we're going to work to make his dreams come true, that they can... this book shows him through wonderful illustration and narrative just what I've been saying.

Dallas, cudos to you for finding incredible success through this book and sharing it with your foundation (I watched the videos on his site and recommend them, too to see what's behind this book).

In a jaded, rough world ya done good.

Thank you.

A book about dreams, "An Awesome Book!", rounds out my personal collection of the ten best and very special children's books of all time. The others are: Winnie the Pooh, Nobody Listens to Andrew, Hope for the Flowers, The Little Prince, Guess How Much I Love You, The Missing Piece, Curious George, Babar and Cat in the Hat.

Wonderful inspirational story and beautiful illustrations. Buy this book and you will be compelled, as have I, to buy copies for all your friends, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, nephews and nieces.

It is so refreshing to have a very positive book that does not start off with negatives and end with happy resolution. It is simply about being happy and it is awesome. My 2 year old has been reading this book for about 6 months and its one of his favorites. Great great story!

This book is great for all ages. It is full of color and contains very imaginative artwork with a great message and is even very clever. Dallas Clayton is an up an coming author, be on the look out. Check out his website he post all kinds of short poems on there. When I went was surprised that I couldn't stop reading them!

I found it to be thought provoking for myself. My 2 year old loves the insane illustrations and we plan to use the book if he has bad dreams. This book can explain and encourage wild, illogical and confusing dreams which may be of comfort to a child that has a hard time with them.

I have the kindle edition of this book and I think it is a great book! I read this to my kids but I also ponder on the message for myself too. I want my children to increase their imagination and we look at the pictures, read the words, and at the right time "ROAR" to each other. I would like to think the focus of this book is to dream bigger dreams than you already are.

The reason I give it 4 stars is it would be nice to zoom in to the pictures. As seen in the sample there are unicorns with rockets and it's hard to see the detail those on our kindles. We use the 7" tablets and perhaps this is partly my fault, but there are many books that I would like to zoom in to the single page or half page and see more detail. This book is full of wonderful art and we are missing some of it because of that.

He is a really wonderful author, and this book is all about the possibilities your kids have in life. It's very imaginitaive and refreshing, and full of made up things, and whimsey.I buy this as a gift for any shower I go to, or for any new parents I visit as a gift. It actually makes me tear up.

My son received this book from his teacher when he graduated from preschool. This is the sweetest book. Me and my son both love it!!! It is one of my favorite gifts to buy when I go to a baby shower.
