Paul’s Picture Book Recommendations #15: Dreamers

Image result for dreamers by yuyi moralesDreamers by Yuyi Morales is a heart-warming tale of immigration based on her own experience with her infant son. It is a book of hope and fear, joy and wonder, courage and possibility. While reading the story and immersing myself in the illustrations I found myself invested not just intellectually, but emotionally as well, viscerally feeling my nerves roiling in my stomach. When the narrator and her baby son discover…

…well, I can’t give it away. You’ll just have to read it.

Dreamers is a love letter to libraries and librarians (that’s you, Tricia Snyderand Colette Eason).

It should be read by everyone between the ages of 4 and 104.

Happy reading.
