Sofia’s Dream by Land Wilson is a charming tale of one child’s friendship with the moon and the important lessons the moon has for the child regarding her home, Mother Earth.
Written for young children up to approximately eight-years-old Sofia’s Dream is a delightful tale written in rhyme and full of the joy of childhood, its discoveries and imaginings. There’s a serious message in the children’s tale. The lesson, to take care of the planet because it’s the only home we have, is critical to the next generation who will one day be stewards of the planet and its resources.
What follows is a brief sample of the story:
“Then one time when the moon seemed blue,
She noticed that his face was too.
“Excuse me, Moon, what bothers you?
There must be something I can do.”
“You need to come and visit me,
For there is something you must see.”
“But you are up there far away!
I’m here on Earth. I have no way.”
Sofia’s Dream is delightful, interesting poetry that will touch children’s minds and hearts while teaching them a valuable lesson. I highly recommend adding it to family’s collection of books. I also think Sofia’s Dream by Land Wilson would be a wonderful acquisition for libraries everywhere.
