From School Library Journal

PreS-K—In a rhyming, lyrical bedtime book, a pigtailed child with rosy cheeks dreams up imaginary people, places, and things. Each is the subject of a quatrain that is phrased in a soothing and pleasant rhythm, adding to the precious and endearing quality of the text. The verses follow the same pattern: "If I had a little book,/I would name it Friend./Friend would go wherever I went,/our story would never end." While Laden does not describe the objects themselves as otherworldly, Castrillon creates a dreamlike tone with her pencil illustrations, which swirl with detail in deep blues, burnt oranges, browns, and reds. The objects and backgrounds are slightly surreal, some with a Seussian feel. The child is surrounded by intricate trees, peculiar plants, and curious forest creatures. Dream threads appear as winding blue vines from the child's head. The pages are pleasantly constructed, with a balance of smaller symmetrical vignettes and half and full spreads. The final page shows the child in the arms of a loving adult caregiver and offers the message, "If I had a little dream,/I would name it You./You would make life magical,/where wishes do come true." VERDICT A sweet bedtime selection where the illustrations are the star. Purchase for medium and large collections.—Clara Hendricks, Cambridge Public Library, MA

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple book with so much to discover inside!
By Peggy on August 6, 2018
This is a delightful and different book! It is a simple book with wonderful illustrations. All of our kids love looking through this book and having it read to them (ages 6 months thru 4 years old). There is so much to discover on each page - and the kids are noticing new things whenever we read it. I highly recommend this book! The kids also love the book "Yellow Kayak", by the same author. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sentimental Favorite
By Bookgirl on October 18, 2019
Initially dismissive of what seemed to be overly sentimental, silly, sing-songy text, I now love this book enough that I purchased my own copy. I even told my husband (when we were led to believe I might have a serious health condition) that if anything should ever happen to me, I wanted him to give this book to my oldest daughter. Not only are the illustrations beautifully stylized, but the text has endeared itself to me--and to my four year old--over time. We often quote the last lines of the book as a reassurance of love for one another, often as a parting or bedtime gesture. Whenever I say, "If I had a little dream, I would name it You," my daughter responds, "You would make life magical, where wishes do come true."

5.0 out of 5 stars The sweetest read
By Rachel O. on September 5, 2020
Oh this is just the sweetest book I think I’ve ever purchased for my daughter. I have a list of Amazon books to buy for my young kiddos and I often base it on how aesthetically pleasing the covers are. While I know a gorgeous book does not always equate to a good read, this one surpassed my expectations. It’s also perfect for my 1st grader as she’s strengthening her reading skills. I would highly recommend this book on its own, but it really is fantastic for new and emerging readers. One of my favorites to reach for at bedtime and I’ve got it on my list of items to gift as well.
