If I Had a Little Dream by Nina LadenI love, love, LOVE the illustrations for this book. Theyre detailed and easy to get lost in, and the colour scheme is just beautiful. I wanted to love the text, too, which has an old-fashioned cadence to the rhythm and the rhyme-for-the-sake-of-rhyme feeling. I love the way each page is its own story, similar to Julie Morstads wonderful How To. But as the book goes on, the rhymes start to feel a little forced, and that gives the poems (the verses?) a slightly empty feeling.
Theres a sort of hollowness to the throwback charm of this picture book--for me, at least. I definitely want to see more of Melissa Castrillóns illustrations in the future, but Im not sure Nina Laden has to be the person writing the text.

Mama Cass - Dream A Little Dream Of Me (with lyrics)
Thank you! The artwork, which uses a limited, autumnal palette, has a retro feel. It has the appearance of thin inked lines surrounded by stencils and block prints. Whimsical animals and plants decorate and sometimes frame the cast of white-skinned children and a motherly woman at the end. A child who wears an orange dress and blonde pigtails is in every illustration—apparently the voice of the poems. The overarching sentiments are love and gentleness, and the verse and artwork complement each other as they lull a child into sleepiness. There was a problem adding your email address.
