My Dream for You is Happiness by Carol Ann Hausman....Review and Giveaway!

I have a lovely children's book to share with you today, My Dream for You is Happiness by Carole Ann Hausman.  This book has become a fast favorite with  my 5 year old daughter and is one we have already read countless times.  Here is the scoop...

Elegantly written by Carole Ann Hausman and gorgeously illustrated by Joanne RaptisMy Dream for You Is Happiness is designed to capture that covenant between child and a loved one reminding that special child how much they are loved. Perfect for getting ready for naptime or bedtime, My Dream for You Is Happiness will plant soothing seeds of serenity in that magic time just before drifting off to dreamland.  The book is not a "once upon a time" story from a child's viewpoint, but a journey for all in contentment, joy and wonder.
 
"I felt so secure and loved as a little girl when my grandmother would read to me," says Carole Ann.  "Reading time was special and sacred because she would stop the millions of things she was doing, sit down, put me in her lap and read. Everything else could wait.  Time stood still.  I was absorbed in the lyrical sound of her voice and the gentle turning of the pages. 
 “It is in this tradition that I created the My Dream for You book series."
Even the youngest of babies who may not quite understand the words in the book will understand the gentle feelings and sweet sentiments that make this new series a must for friends and families to enjoy together over and over again.  
 
No matter your age, no matter how many possessions you have or lack, no matter what your child wants to be when he or she grows up, the dream for a contented life is universal and infinite.  Just “think of all the people who love you very much, take a deep breath and be happy.”
 
Our Thoughts:  This book is a true gem.   Not only is it the ultimate bedtime story but to be honest, it really is the ultimate any time story.   The message of love and happiness flows from page to page with thoughtful text and charming images.  I think the author really conveys what we want for the people in our life...happiness!  It is a sweet reminder that there is joy and happiness to be found all around us and everywhere we go and that even when things don't go exactly how we plan, we can choose happiness.  What a powerful message for all!  I especially love this part and get choked up (in a good way :)) each time I read it....
"When I tuck you into bed each night, I wonder what your life will be when you grow up."  I love that line because that is exactly what I do and, like the books says further on, "My dream for you is that you will have all the happiness and joy in your life that you have brought to mine".   The is book is beautiful and should be on the shelf of every little one.  You can purchase the book now on Amazon...
 
 


I am also really excited to tell you that this book is the first in a planned series with a second book coming out early in 2016 so stay tuned for that! Great news!
