Let us meet the little boy Aiden who lived with his mom and dad, his grandfather and grandmother, and Leo, his pet cat, in a big city in the storybook Fairy of Dreams: Story About a Boy Who did not Want to Sleep at Night by Jessica Neal. Aiden lived next to a big shopping mall and his city was very noisy with tall skyscrapers, cabs, and people who loved talking all the time. There was nothing unusual about Aiden except for the fact that he loved looking at the stars all night. Behind the city lived the Fairy of Dreams in a tiny house and she would wait for the children of the big city to fall asleep. She kept a huge jar of shimmering silver bells filled with the most wonderful dreams next to her glittering red armchair. Each of these silver bells played a unique tune whenever each child fell asleep and the Fairy of Dreams heard their distinct melody. One night there was one silver bell left in the jar and the Fairy of Dreams spent all night waiting to hear Aiden's unique melody.
Fairy of Dreams by Jessica Neal is magical and conveys an important message to children, that of understanding the importance of sleeping at night instead of staying awake. Like the Tooth Fairy, the Fairy of Dreams will also win the hearts of young readers with her charm. The illustrations are as delightful and whimsical as the story. It is definitely an excellent bedtime storybook to get children into bed and off to sleep early and can also be used in classrooms by tutors to help children understand the value of sleep so that they have enough energy during the day to laugh and play.
