Dream with a child

The Land of Smaerd © 2008 by Know Wonder Publishing, Written by Andrea Von Botefuhr, Illustrated by Bryn Barnard

An imaginative child, a child with nightmares, a child with large ambitions, a playful child, all with enjoy this adventure into the land of dreams spelled backwards. A lovely book to share for the detail of the vibrant color illustrations by local artist Barnard. It’s a literal and metaphoric rhyming story of dreams: both what happens at night, and things we wish for.

The Land of Smaerd, like all books reviewed here, may be found at the San Juan Island Library.
