A heartwarming text honoring the ever-evolving relationship of a parent and child across time, with visually striking art by bestselling and award-winning artist Rafael López.
Each evening when the sun has set, as nighttime casts a starry net,
I’ll hitch a ride on moonbeams, and meet you in your dreams.
This poetic and tender story celebrates the parent-and-child bond in its many forms and offers gentle assurance of love across a lifetime. Two parents’ dreams of the future with their children — from early dependence for nourishment and basic needs, to the parent as home base for a child in later life — mirror an always-changing but unbreakable relationship.
Written in lyrical rhyme and accompanied by breathtaking art by the incomparable Rafael López, I’ll Meet You in Your Dreams affirms that parental love is a constant force, transcending boundaries of space and time.
A bedtime fantasy of love, possibility, and acceptance. ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
