Kids love to dream about what they might do when they grow up: jobs they might have, places they might go, people they might meet. And parents and caregivers love to encourage and support them.
But for Christian parents, their greatest aspiration for their children, their dream of all dreams, is that whatever their kids do and wherever they go, they will love and follow Jesus.
As children embark on life’s journey with all their potential and aspirations, express to them your biggest dream with this beautiful illustrated rhyming children’s book.
As well as teaching children about the only thing that really matters in life, this book also reminds parents that telling their kids about Jesus is more important than anything else.
Makes a wonderful gift for a wide range of children—from 3-year-olds to 8-year-olds—for birthdays, Christmas or even graduations!

This will become an all-time favorite read-aloud! What every parent wants to say— and what every child wants to hear. There's nothing you want your child to know more than what this charming book sings in lyrical, romping lines—lines that will tie your heart to your child's and wrap you both up in the love of God and the supremest dream we all have to know. My daughter and I were so smitten with it that we read it twice right away!

Having loved Dr Seuss since childhood, I am excited to share this book with my grandchildren. This title will inspire many conversations. I love how it values all paths children might take. I love how the Kingdom will come through children starting their big dreams with Jesus.
