This is a beautiful book that adults and young children can enjoy together. Every page or two starts with, "When my baby dreams..." and is followed by a page with a picture of the author's sleeping baby, and this picture is set into a creatively staged photo of a forest floor, a cityscape, a perfectly pink world, etc. etc. For example: One page says, "When my baby dreams of traveling the world..." Next page is a picture of sleeping baby atop an Indian Elephant and the words below, "she starts her journey on the back of an Indian elephant..." Next page is the sleeping baby riding a leopard, and the words on the next page read, "tames a leopard on an African safari..."
I remember when my own children were very young; it was these predictable and repetitive books that they seemed to like best, at about the age of two. They love the fact that they can quickly and easily anticipate what is coming next, it helps them to memorize the pages in the book and it's magical when they start reciting the words right along with you!
I can't wait to present this book to my newly pregnant niece.
The pages of the book are a nice heavy weight paper with a subtle sheen that complements the photographs. I would love to also see this published as a board book, so I could trust my toddler with it. This one is simply too pretty for her to rip up.
