Dreams…we all have them. But there is probably no stronger dreams than those of a child imagining what they will be when they grow up. There are no limitations, no self-doubt – at least not until doubts are planted by the world, by others, or by themselves. Only then do those dreams start to fade, start to fall to the wayside, start to become “unreachable.” For most people, those childhood dreams are forgotten and are never realized – or ARE they?
A Mother’s Dream – a children’s book written by Fuzzy Duck Founder, Eddie Ulrich – suggests that our childhood dreams live on in us somehow – regardless of what we end up doing – they live on in our personalities, our traits, and our daily actions. Maybe we aren’t the literal firefighter we dreamed of becoming but maybe we still possess the courage of a firefighter. And maybe that firefighter courage is recognized by others even if we don’t see it ourselves. In fact, maybe the fulfillment of our dreams is seen best through the eyes of our own children.
A Mother’s Dream follows the day in the life of a Mother as she shares with her daughter what she believes are her own lost dreams. But through the use of clever illustrations, we see this Mother’s literal interpretation of her dreams contrasted directly by her daughter’s vision of how her Mother fulfills each dream in her daily life.
