Synopsis from Goodreads:
This poetic and tender story celebrates the parent-and-child bond in its many forms and offers gentle assurance of love across a lifetime. Two parents’ dreams of the future with their children—from early dependence for nourishment and basic needs, to the parent as home base for a child in later life—mirror an always-changing but unbreakable relationship.
I’ll Meet You in Your Dreams is an absolutely gorgeous children’s picture book. Full of stunning illustrations and lyrical prose, it follows two parents and their children as they dream of the future, all the way from infancy to adulthood. It is a family-centric story that highlights the importance of the parent-child relationship in a poetic way. From young babies to children, this is a great story to sit down and read with your kids. The artwork is simply magical with a touch of the fantastical. It takes the reader through reality and dreamland, bringing the writing to life in a clean and artful manner.
Little Worn pages is a bit too young to really understand the story in any way, but he was intrigued by the imagery. This book is full of bright colours and engaging patterns. The pictures are easily describable so I could explain to him what each image was. This will be a permanent part of our book collection, so I know we will return to it again and again. I look forward to when he can comprehend the story so I can share the beauty of it. We’ll be able to read and dream together.
