Reynolds (Playing from the Heart) returns to familiar inspirational territory as he celebrates individuality, self-expression, and the joys of being a dreamer. A shaggy-haired boy narrates, explaining that while the world often tells him to sit still and be quiet, my dreams have a mind of their own. Hes initially shown sitting at a gray desk in a gray classroom, but a swirl of color beckons, and soon hes leaping across a spread, accompanied by music notes and bursts of cheerful color. Throughout, Reynoldss hand-lettered text and airy cartoons dance across the pages, capturing the freewheeling workings of the childs mind, and a gatefold showcases children showing off dozens of way to be happy (a nature happy girl on a hike, an art happy painter) or dreamers (such as a stage dreamer midperformance). While Reynoldss encouragements can get generic at times (Sometimes... Im a colorful dreamer,/ painting my own path/ full of surprises at every turn!), he offers a liberating validation of dreaming as restorative, comforting, and powerful, while giving kids full license to be themselves. Ages 48. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Mar.)
