Summer Reading Day 70: Hey everyone! We had a special guest-reviewer today, JJ’s best buddy Betty, and together we read Day Dreamers: A Journey of Imagination by Emily Winfield Martin. This gorgeous book is about daydreams, and the beautiful and often fantastic creatures we create within them.
We are big fans of Martin’s book Dream Animals: A Bedtime Journey (which was introduced to us by Betty and her mommy), and we enjoyed Day Dreamers a lot, too. The story and rhyme is sweet and fun to read, with a good length for little ones, and we loved the theme of exploring where our imaginations can find inspiration: reading, thinking, wondering and so on. But this book’s main selling point, as with Dream Animals, is its phenomenal art. The Victorian-gothic inspired art is intricate and wonderful to behold. We had a lot of fun reading it.
