My son is 4, he loves books and reading together. This did not happen overnight, I started reading to him as an infant and just never stopped. Last year we read over 1,000 from the library alone. How, you might ask does one do that.  We read an average of 3 books each night at story time (less if the book is very long and wordy), we read at least 5 throughout the week during the day.  Some days I read 10 books to my son, because he asks.  The best way to do this is collect books like this one that are interesting and personalized.  I’ve found the personalized books we have are in the top 5 most requested books.  That is why I highly recommend personalized books and was happy to review this one.

I’m sure you’ve seen personalized books before, so what makes Where do Dreams Come From? special?  It includes his name, 2 of his friends names, the town he lives in, and a favorite game.  The smile on my son’s face the first time I read about him racing cars with his 2 best friends in the book was priceless. 

As you can see compared to the nickel, the font in this book is a good size for children to follow along and help read.

My son keeps asking me to read my books to him then complaining about the lack of illustrations. He say’s they must have realistic, clear illustrations like the ones in this book to be a good book.

He laughed, smiled, nodded and generally loved this book.  Since getting Where do Dreams Come From? we have read it together about once a week and he opens it to look at the pictures every few days on his own.

We did find one small mistake in the book, where it was supposed to be personalized him it said her, this was only in one location and did not detract from the story.

Book Excerpt:

It was a beautiful sunny morning in (child’s hometown).  (Child’s name) woke up with a big smile on his/her face because he/she had such a wonderful dream.  (Child’s Name) had a dream about playing their favorite game, with (friends/relative).

As (child’s name) got ready to begin their day, he/she thought, hmm… I wonder where dreams come from? He/She tried to think of the answer, long and hard, but could not think of where dreams came from.  Then (child’s name) got excited – he/she was sure (parents or loved one) would know the answer.  (Child’s name) couldn’t wait to see (parents or loved one) so she could ask.
