Benito's Dream Bottle Benito's Dream Bottle Reviews
Love this book. It's not so much a story as a dream...um, just like it's supposed to be. The illustrations are wonderful and as with all of Naomi Nye's writing, it's very real, directly from her life and experience. While I did put a finished reading date at the bottom of this review, I hope to never finish this book.
Benito's grandmother is having difficulty remembering her dreams, so Benito goes out to consult family and friends to find out from where dreams come. Yu Cha Pak's illustrations lend to the "dream-like" feel of this book rendered in Naomi Shihab Nye's beautiful writing.
Benito's Dream Bottle Benito's Dream BottleNye, Naomi ShihabGrandma had no dreams and benito wanted to find out why, he asked everyone he knew, and despite all their good reasons he knew why, and he worked to refill her dreams, and found ways to inspire everyone in his family.
I have always been fond of Naomi Shihab Nye's poetry. This children's book is one of our favorites. It's a beautiful and poetic (of course) myth about where dreams come from. :)
