BOOK REVIEW: What Wonders Do You See... When You Dream? by Justine Avery and Liuba Syrotiuk

What Wonders Do You See... When You Dream?
Author: Justine Avery, Liuba Syrotiuk
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publication Date: 17 October 2019

Book Description:
The day has ended. Hasn't it been splendid? But now, it's time--to be sure--for an entirely different adventure.

This is an invitation to a new nighttime ritual, a going-to-bed book that reminds us all that bedtime can be the most wonderful time of all...

The spellbinding style and alluring rhythm of Justine Avery's writing are brought to life by Liuba Syrotiuk's dreamlike watercolor illustrations to inspire children and adults to set aside the day's excitement and drift into the adventure of sleep itself.

What Wonders Do You See... When You Dream? encourages calm and creativity, relaxation and imagination, and welcomes young and old alike to the blissful, magical time of bedtime.

This was a very charming and whimsical read indeed. Loved the rhyme scheme throughout and the illustrations were appropriate and fitting to the theme of the story. I would definitely recommend this as a bedtime read for kids, to show them the wonders and joy of sleeping and all the possibilities that come with dreaming. What I especially liked was that the story incorporates routine for preparing for bedtime, such as brushing your teeth and putting on your pyjamas. Kids would be able to relate to this and it may also be a useful tool to implement routine for those with bedtime difficulties.

An engaging and adventurous read that I recommend for kids aged between 4-7.
