“The award-winning singer has taken one of her songs and created a gorgeous picture book” raved School Library Journal about Jewel’s first picture book, That’s What I’d Do.
In Sweet Dreams, a mother’s soothing lullaby opens the door to an imagined adventure for her sleeping child. Amy June Bates’s luminous illustrations capture the beautiful world of dreams that every mother wishes for her child. The pair rows though the indigo night sky and catches shimmering stars in their silver net. Cascading clouds spill form the Big Dipper, drawing them along their night journey.
