When My Baby Dreams
By Adele Enersen
Balzer + Bray, 2012. Unpaged. Picture book.
Beautiful photos of a new mother's sweet, sleeping baby have been compiled to create an imaginative story of the baby's dreamland adventures. Enersen has created amazing scenes with the simplest of materials, such as sheets, blankets, paper cutouts, and rugs. Amidst it all, her darling child slumbers peacefully, posing for dreamy photographs. A particularly fun aspect of the book is the spark it can create in other parents to document their own children similarly at home. The creative element is so lovely in this book and one can't help but be completely charmed by the sweetness of the author's small child and the lovingly crafted scenes that surround her.
