Reading children's books is always a delightful experience, especially if they are as inspiring as Betsy Church's illustrated story, Dream Beans. The adventure begins one night at the home of a child named Oscar. Oscar is asleep, but he suddenly wakes up and discovers the Dream Beans next to him. What do they want? The Dream Beans are planted by God in his heart to let him know that he has talents and qualities that no one else has. They invite him to share his discovery with his parents and friends. Beautifully and colorfully illustrated by David Molinero, Dream Beans is a book that will make you and your children dream with open eyes.
When a children's book not only tells a good story but is also a source of inspiration for young readers and their parents, the author has definitely written something truly special. This is why I liked Dream Beans so much. Betsy Church conveyed a valuable message to her young readers and managed to do it in the nicest and most delicate way possible. Dream Beans is a book that will help children build their self-confidence, exactly as Oscar did. Although he, too, felt inadequate at first for the task that the Dream Beans assigned him, then he carried it out wonderfully. We must never underestimate our children's abilities. On the contrary, it is our duty to invite them to develop the talents and gifts that God has given them. I believe that Dream Beans is the right book to explain this important concept to children of all ages.
