What to Expect: Aspirations, problem-solving, self-belief, mindfulness.

Dreams can feel unreal because they only live in our heads. Whether it’s flying a rocket to space, climbing the tallest mountain in the world, or just being the best version of you that you can be, dreams can feel impossible and unreachable because they don’t yet exist in the real world. However, our heads are they places where possibilities are born. It’s only by embracing the dreams that take root there that we can make great things happen—for ourselves, others, and the whole world. Even more importantly, your dreams belong to you alone, and only you get to decide if they’ll come true!

Aspiration, speculation, and actualization are complex concepts for adults—let alone young readers. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t just as important, however. For Those Who Dream depicts these abstract ideas as magical, inviting readers to see dreaming as powerful and transformative. Beautiful, softly colored, dream-like illustrations support this approach, offering enough substance to make dreams feel real. The text uses rhyme and lyrical description to challenge readers’ literacy skills while adding a soothing rhythm that is well-suited to introspection. 

For Those Who Dream is a thought-provoking picture book perfect for the young dreamer in your family or classroom.

About the Author

While reading to his three children at the end of each night, Benjamin Carroll was inspired to write a children’s book of his own. No matter how busy life gets, he’s quickly learned one of the greatest ways to engage a child’s mind is to bond over a story; to allow your minds to journey together. To end each day with a positive message to catapult into the next day. He hopes this book finds you and your family well and helps encourage your child to dream fearlessly and passionately.
