In the same spirit of Oh, the Places You’ll Go!,  the beloved, worldwide bestselling creator of The Dot and Ish (the incomparable Peter H. Reynolds!) inspires readers of every age to find their own unique path to happy, and to always follow their dreams with Happy Dreamer.

As huge fans of both The Dot and Ish (which we read on the first day of school this year!), I was so excited to read the latest from creative genius and picture book author, Peter H. Reynolds. This adorable yet poignant book celebrates what it means to dream and the many ways to find your happy.

While the world tells us to sit still, to follow the rules, and to color inside the lines, Happy Dreamer celebrates the spirit inside us that prompts us to follow our hearts, seize the moment, and let our spirits fly free.

My husband and I are both dreamers -always thinking of what could be, mulling over new ideas, and always juggling a dozen different thoughts. I LOVE that this book encourages kids to dream – in whatever way aligns with who THEY are. This book so masterfully finds a way to celebrate our uniqueness AND the creative ties that bind us. Whether you’re a quiet dreamer, a colorful dreamer, or a fierce dreamer – you can find your happy – especially by being true to you.


In Peter’s signature voice and style, this empowering picture book reminds children of how much their dreams matter, and while life will have ups and downs, he enlists readers to stay true to who they are, to tap into their most creative inner selves, and to never ever forget to dream big!

Peter H. Reynolds’ latest inspirational book is a perfect gift for graduations, new babies, milestone moments, and any happy occasion throughout the year for any age!

I highly encourage you to read this book to the children in your life and inspire them to start DREAMING and find the things that make them come alive inside.
