Perfect Grad Gift  Jul 15, 2008
I give this beautiful book all the time as gifts for grads of all ages, including high school and university. It's a multilayered book, and a thoughtful reader will discover more each time they open its pages. The illustrations and text in "Dream" have a simple level for younger readers, but teens and adults will see other layers through the symbolism and metaphor that speak to the heart and spirit. Two pages at the rear of the book discuss many of the layers of meaning. This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it as a gift for occasions like a birth, birthday, or grad.
disappointed  Jul 9, 2008
I purchased several of these books as high school graduation gifts based on recommendations. I felt the illustrations and text was far too childlike to give to a high school graduate and therefore ending up returning them all.
Dream: A Tale of Wonder, Wisdom & Wishes  Jul 1, 2008
This book made excellent graduation gifts for several high school graduates this year. It helped me convey my greatest wish for each of the recipients--to keep dreaming. I also use the book in my classroom and use many of the activities at the related website to help my students learn more about dreaming and then taking the steps to make those dreams come true.

The book contains one of my favorite poems-Dreams by Langston Hughes. The whimsical illustrations highlight the wonderful message this book conveys. I would highly recommend this book.
Inspiring Treasure...Dream  May 31, 2008
Being a fan of Kittie Nesius Beletic's "What Color Is You Dream?" published by Brown Books Publishing Group, I thought I might enjoy this book, "Dream: A Tale of Wonder, Wisdom, & Wishes" by Susan V. Bosak, so I ordered it. I am glad that I did! :)

Dream really does capture your heart, mind, and soul with its guiding text, kaleidoscope-like personalities, human diversity, and vibrant art, which was rendered by 15 top illustrators. The beautifully detailed book cover entices readers to open the book quickly and explore at leisure. The silver, star-filled end sheets really do make one believe that he / she has a special product in hand, and they too are useful for contemplation. The book's fonts are friendly, large, and easy to read--especially for eyeglass wearers. Colors in this book are used to convey moods and shade meaning.

I like how the book opens with the definitions of dream and the illustration of a person opening a huge chest at the end of a glorious rainbow. The in-text prompts to "Dream a Dream With Me" are clever devices to tie the ideas together into a unified whole. Quotes from key figures add much to the pages, given them depth and reach. Most helpful is the book's "Explore the Illustrations" notes, which comment on the artists as well as their work.

Educationally, this book promotes keen observation, critical thinking and response, personal expression, historical-mindedness, humanity's strengths / successes, awareness, courage, gratitude, and the ages and stages of human life. Potentially, it encourages reading and research beyond its own pages. It is appropriate for a variety of audiences, teens to adults. Book messages are especially appropriate for folks who are taking new road's in life's journey: graduates, folks recovering from illness or injury, people who are moving to new places, people who are retiring or rethinking their lives, etc.

To make the most of the book, avid readers can visit the official Legacy Project website and find more materials to explore. Educators will enjoy the guides, suggestions, and activities in the "Begin and End With a Dream" section of the webpage. Contests and workshops are also available on the site.

Perhaps my favorite portion of the book is the "Great ideas--the impossible made possible" pages (16-17). From medieval to modern, the rich image illustrates humanity's collective "learning lab," where the world's most influential discoveries and inventions can be found. The more you look into the image, the more you see, the more you feel connected to something larger than yourself! You begin to realize how much your life has been influenced, affected, and improved by other people's dreams, their contributions to humanity. Some of the highlights of this image are the following:

1) the medieval window that opens to a refreshing view of sea, land, and sky

2) the sconces

3) a retro-modern looking TV that is broadcasting the moon landing

4) Computer, book, papers, and pens

5) Rocket models, engines, and pictures of various flying machines

6) Basic tools, gears, printing press, hour glass

7) Telescope, telephone, microscope, electricity devices,

This book would make a great gift or achievement / award book. It is a worthy product for personal study and group discussion. Humanities instructors could glean much mileage from this source, a great supplement to lesson plans, special projects, multiculturalism, diversity, art appreciation, history appreciation, philosophy, literature, etc. Home schooling families might find the book useful in bring some interdisciplinary flavor to their curriculums.

Truly, no one dreams alone...because when dreams come true, many people, many lives are forever touched.
keeping the dream alive  Dec 28, 2007
This is a beautiful, well written book and a great gift for anyone working toward a goal.
Each page takes you through a color of the rainbow, and through a stage of life. It offers hope for those who may have hit a rough spot in attaining their "dream". I received it as a gift and bought 6 copies to give away. It's a book I will read again and again!
