Dreams don’t come true all on their own! Set off on an adventure with the Dream Keepers–the guardians who help a wish take its place in the sky through positivity and perseverance.

The Land of Dreams is a fantastic place, where wishes are born as a tiny twinkle of light, rising up from Inspiration Lake. From there, a wish must take a long journey in order to become a gleaming star in the sky–and it will need help along the way! So, every wish has two guardians known as Dream Keepers: one in charge of Happy Thoughts, and one in charge of Hard Work.

When a very special wish needs to reach a home all the way at the top of Challenge Mountain, can the Dream Keepers complete the journey? Or will they give up?

The Dream Keepers is an uplifting story about facing challenges with determination, and overcoming obstacles on the way to achieving your goals.
