Dreamseeker Wish Keeper by Audrey N. Lewis. Book Review.

The story begins “Wisdom, Hope, Curiosity, and Love sat on top of Cloud Number Nine, the one with the pinkish lining.” There, they discuss the misguided wishes of dream seekers.

Then, they hear the wishes of a little girl who is about to celebrate her birthday. She dreams of things to help others such as homes for the homeless, a healthy earth, and her brother no longer needing a wheelchair. The dreamseekers decide to grant her a special gift. They leave her a soft journal filled with advice and a statement of love. Upon opening it, the little girl immediately wants to share with her family.

The illustrations are ink drawings roughly coloured in with pastels or crayons. Unfortunately, several of them seem rushed or unfinished. Many could use more detail.

I think this book would be unlovely accompaniment to actual gift of a journal to a child. It doesn’t have much of a story by itself. It is mostly an encouragement to follow your dreams. The message is an important one, though, and this book could be the stimulus for valuable discussion.
