You know when you come across something so inspirational or so sweet that you feel like you just want to gush? Or have you ever read a children's book that touched your heart so deeply that you read it over and over? I can recall The Giving Tree was like that when I was a child. As a mama, there have been a few books that I covet and love to read to my girls because of the message that they deliver -- though the concept is usually too big for them to understand yet (someday!). Today I purchased one such book by Dallas Clayton entitled "An Awesome Book!". Dallas sent me a very brief email with a simple link to his book (I like brief emails these days) and when I clicked the link to read all of the pages, I nearly cried. It was the sort of book that has a profound message about big dreams, imagination, individuality, choices, life and love and it's beautifully illustrated. Dallas has a five year old son whom he wrote it for. I know this book will be a HUGE hit with Bean -- she'll LOVE staring at the intricate illustrations and will certainly inspire her to come up with a book of her own. You'll have to give it a read, I have a feeling "An Awesome Book" will be big when the world discovers it!
