The DREAMTIME cycle of poems is meant to be read aloud to/with children who are either too wound-up or night-spooked to welcome sleep. It's boy- and girl-friendly. It's also all-kinds-of-parents friendly. This edition of DreamTime is the original version, specifically written for MOMS to read aloud to their children. The DreamTime cycle of rhyming poems (with lots of child-POV illustrations) tells the REAL story of bedtime. Forget oopy-goopy lullabies! This book tells the story of "Wayfaring Dream Explorers and the Folks Who Love Them." We begin at day's end, when it's all we can do to get jammies on and lights turned off. But once intrepid sleepers set sail, adventures unfold. Dream Buccaneers set off for the wilds of DreamTime, leaving their timid grown-ups behind to wait for coming dawn. The cycle of poems concludes with the promise of a gentle welcome into morning as the dream explorers return to greet the day. Fun bedtime reading includes a glossary to reinforce both the playful and literary aspects of the verse. If you're a Dad or another caretaker, look for your own versions: "DreamTime for Dads" or "DreamTime for You." Happy reading! Happy dreaming!

From the Author:

As I put this book together (yes, I, the author also designed this book), it occurred to me that we take for granted who is reading to children. Too often, the "voice" of children's books is assumed to be Mommy's. That works wonderfully for the nights when Mommy's tucking children into bed. Or for families where there are two mommy's. But what about the nights when Daddy does the tucking? What about the families where there are two daddys, or where the caregivers go by other names: Gramma, Grampa, Cousin, etc? With those questions in mind, I created three versions of my DreamTime book. They're all the same cycle of poems. But each one is keyed to a distinct reader. DREAMTIME, the original edition, is for Mommys to read. DREAMTIME FOR DADS--well, that's clear. And then there's DREAMTIME FOR YOU. I know there are so many folks taking care of children who go by different names. So this third edition is customizable: the grown-up reader can fill in her/his name throughout the book so that his/her relationship to a beloved child is commemorated. I hope, in this small way, that these DreamTime books can fill the special needs of the special people who take it upon themselves to help children ease into the beautiful world of dreams.

About the Author:

Think. Speak. Write. That's what Amanda McTigue does. On the page. For the stage. She's a novelist and produced playwright as well as a published short-story writer and poet. GOING TO SOLACE, her debut novel, will arrive on Amazon's shelves in May, 2012. Her works here at Amazon for the family include ONCE UPON A LULLABY, (both the book and companion CD of beautiful songs for bedtime), illustrated by (4-year old!) Daisy Samuelson and the DREAMTIME series, illustrated by (6-year-old!) Kenney Knisely. ONCE UPON A LULLABY (music and poetry) sets a mood of tranquility at bedtime, for the littlest of little ones right through to those grown-ups who have a hard time shaking the tumult of their walking life. The DREAMTIME cycle of poems is meant to be read aloud to/with children who are either too wound-up or night-spooked to welcome sleep. It's boy- and girl-friendly. It's also all-kinds-of-parents friendly. There's a version specifically for moms, one for dads, and a customizable version for grammas or grampas, aunties or cousins, indeed, for any blessed soul who looks after children.Amanda lives and writes in Sonoma County, CA.
