When My Baby Dreams by Adele Enersen

From the brilliant mind of new mother Adele Enersen comes this imaginative journey through the irresistible dreamscapes of a newborn. A love letter to babies everywhere.

"Sometimes, Mila dreams she’s a butterfly . . . .

Sometimes, she’s a bookworm . . .

Or a surfer girl , or even an astronaut.

When Mila dreams, she can be anything."

(from Amazon.com)

my thoughts:

I made a rule when I began my blog that I wouldn't include children's literature or young adult titles as I was pretty burned out on that topic being a reading specialist for almost fifteen years.....but today I have to make an exception. (Just this once!) I saw this creative mom and her new book featured on the Today show this morning and instantly fell in love with this storybook!

Is there anything more sweet and peaceful looking as a sleeping baby? If you are a mom, have you ever wondered what visions may be floating through your baby's mind as he or she is napping? Well, this inventive mom created adorable vignettes to illustrate images of what her baby girl, Mila, might be imagining as she sleeps. Utterly charming! I wish I knew someone who was expecting (or a new mom) so I could give it as a baby gift!
