Review: Jack's Dreams Come to Life by Sara Jackson

Jack's Dreams Come To Life by Sara Jackson

My rating: 4.0/5.0

Publisher: BookSurge Publishing
Release Date: July 28, 2009
Pages: 26
Binding: Paperback
Children's Book

A cute children's book where a dog named Jack (who is no longer a puppy) gets tired of playing and falls asleep. While asleep he dreams of various things that he plays with becoming bigger. Thankfully he wakes up and finds it was all a dream.

I received this for review and read it to my boys last night. I have an 8-year-old and a 4-year-old and they both enjoyed it. The oldest said "that was a good book Mom" and the youngest said "Can you read it again?" So I would say it won them over.It reads well for an adult (I like kids books that read easy) and the kids seem to enjoy it. The oldest got the point about it being scary but the dog waking up to find out it's a dream. The youngest just enjoyed the story.

A great book for kids younger and a little older and great for parents to read to their kids. Wonderfully illustrated and well-written, we, as a family, really enjoyed this book.

This sounds very cute. I also read a few kids books (seasonal) recently--it was fun.
