Where Do Dreams Come From (review)

I love reviewing children's books because our family loves to read. Well, everyone except my husband, but that's OK. I read to my children all of the time and I love books that can be personalized so when I had the opportunity to review this one, I jumped at the chance.

Where Do Dreams Come From - Kim Delgado

A magical story that will satisfy even the most curious child and expand their imagination about Dream Land, the place where dreams are made. After all, what child wouldn’t love to know "Where Do Dreams Come From?” 

In this magical adventure, your child’s imagination takes them on a visit to Dream Land where they see how dreams are made. They learn about the "Dream Machine" and the fairies that work very hard to make sure that happy dreams are delivered to children around the world. This is the perfect bedtime story to expand your child’s imagination, encourage reading and instill pleasant dreams!

Can I just tell you that when I read this book for Penelope, she was so excited to not just have her name mentioned in the book but also her brother and sister, too. The author, Kim Delgado, is the owner of KD Novelties, an independent publisher of personalized books. I really invite you to look around on the website because there are so many unique gifts (books, CD's, puzzles, bags, etc) that you can personalize, perfect for a kiddo who maybe has a unique of uncommonly spelled name.

The book itself is an adorable story of a child who learns about the Dream Machine and the fairies who work in the factory. The illustrations are fun, the story is fun, and Penelope totally enjoyed being involved in the story. It's a really great bedtime story and though Penelope (almost two) can't read yet, she enjoyed making  machine like noises and acting surprised/scared/happy as needed throughout the story. Plus, it's a fun book we'll likely keep in her forever box once she's grown out of it.

You can find your own copy of Where Do Dreams Come From on the KD Novelties website, The other cool thing is you can read the story on the website (click on the above link and scroll down until to the personalization area and click on the "read story" tab) and see where the personalizing information goes in the story. Overall? I'm giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. It's a cute and fun read, it has great illustrations, it's a good read for kids up to age 7ish, and it's a great book for getting ready for bed!
