Young children need more books like Dallas Clayton’s re-release An Awesome Book! His rhyming couplet form sends positive messages to never give up and to try. Little ones need to latch onto these ideas and grow with them. Encouragement today to dream big inspires tomorrow’s visionaries.
The author’s belief that dreamers can change things is the truth. Look at history. People like Gilbert, Franklin, and Bell thought big. That is how they changed electricity from scientific curiosity to an industrial revolution force. Imagine life with no devices like the telephone, the computer, the electric light. Their inventions broadened the world and changed how mankind lives.
So do rocket power unicorns, candy cane machines, magical watermelon boats, musical baboons, teeny tiny trumpet players training pet raccoons, dancing wild animals with diamond coated wings. Fantastical and impractical as they may be, they spark imagination, the heart of all creation. Imagination is what inspires man to think up new things.
While Clayton wrote An Awesome Book! for his son, its lessons are for everyone. His belief, aspire, relative to everyone on earth, made him join the Future Fortified Team to improve the world’s nutrition.
