Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

Dream Away is one of my very favorite picture books. The beautiful rhyming books is not overworked and the rhymes flow nicely from one page to the next. The book captures this wonderful idea of a father reading a bedtime story to his son as the son slowly drifts off into sleep among the stars. Through their flight on a large paper boat, the boy and his father encounter all sorts of interesting things in the skies, and it isn't until the end that you learn that many of these objects sit as toys on the chair, the dresser, the floor. The illustrations are inventive and sweet, and I think the whole book just blends very nicely.
