It can be hard to get little children to go to sleep. They hear about the Boogie Man, the Sandman and the Monster under the bed, so what is a child to do to drift off peacefully? Priscilla and the Sandman by Anders Roseberg is a beautiful children’s story about what can happen once you get your child to bed. Priscilla knew about the Sandman, but her mother told her of a different version of the story. She told Priscilla that before she goes to bed, she should set her mind to dream about something exciting, magical and fun. With this new take on the Sandman, Priscilla was intrigued and couldn’t wait to meet the Sandman.

The Sandman was a cat, but not just like any other cat; this cat was a gentleman. As he walked Priscilla through her dreams, she saw gingerbread and peanut butter trees, a chocolate door, popcorn blossoms, a red licorice swing and a gummy bear crown. In her dream, she was so enchanted that she told the Sandman that this was the best dream ever, and then he disappeared. Will Priscilla ever be scared to sleep and dream again?

Loved it, loved it. This is a great way for children to not only dream, but to not be scared to go to sleep and dream. Children have wonderful, fascinating imaginations and may not dream of sugar crystals, the moon made of cheese or animal crackers performing acrobatic tricks, but regardless of the type of dreams that they encounter, they too will enjoy meeting the Sandman.

It's true. It's a great little story for kids. My daughter can read along with the audiobook, and she's just turning 4.
