What if you were created for something so special, so amazing, so big that you could change the world? Dream Big for Kids, by New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff and his daughter, Lindsey, shares the inspiring message that your dreams have a purpose. In this children's book about aspirations, kids will find that dreaming big is about becoming the wonderful, creative person God created them to be.

Bob Goff wants kids to know that their dreams matter! Dream Big for Kids invites readers on a journey of discovering what it means to dream big. From writing songs to climbing mountains to fighting sickness as a doctor or scientist, dreams don't look the same for everyone. And they don't become "big dreams" because they're loud or popular. Dreams grow from the creative spirit and individual spark God put in each of us to make a difference, to build something new, and to help the world.

Showcasing whimsical and inspirational art, this picture book

  • is for ages 4 to 8;
  • is a great gift for baby showers, birthdays, Christmas, baptisms, graduations, and other milestones; and
  • is the perfect message for Bob Goff fans of all ages.

Dream Big for Kids is a children’s book written by Bob Goff and Lindsey Goff Viducich.

This book is all about big dreams. It inspires kids to have big dreams, and it gives examples of dreams to get kids’ imaginations going.

My Thoughts: This is an absolutely wonderful book. It is extremely encouraging, and does a great job of inspiring kids to start reaching for their dreams right now.

The illustrations are so beautiful as well. There is an entire story being told in these pictures, and after I read the story, I went back and looked through all of the pictures again.

Then, I sat down and read this book to my eight-year old son. He also really enjoyed it.

This book would be perfect to have at home, or give as a gift. I hope they decide to make it into a board book, because I think it could be great for little kids as well, and the pictures are already well-suited for that too.

It’s a really great book, and I enjoyed it!

I would like to thank Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN’S for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!

So to begin, I’m a big fan of Bob Goff. As a mom of a 6 year who’s learning about God, I found this a be a great tool. I loved the story and the motivation and encouragement. Highly recommend.

This book encourages children to dream big, take risks and discover what the world has to offer. The messages are really positive and will be fairly easy for young children to understand. The illustrations are beautiful and really intriguing. I love the use of shadow and perspective to create depth, it almost tells the reader that you are about to join the adventure the characters are embarking on. The font is clean and is usually black on a single light coloured background (ex. a cloud or light blue sky). There are about 5 sentences per page and the text includes mainly decodable words and sight words. It is not an overwhelming amount of information or include unnecessarily difficult vocabulary. My only hesitation is that the book does mention God's dream and love, which would be a positive aspect for some families and teachers but may not be the right fit for others. I would recommend this book to parents and teachers of children in the age 4-9 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.

Very cute picture book to show children to think outside of "The Box" and dream big! There is never a dream too big!

Dream Big for Kids is a beautiful book about how some of the best dreams come when we're wide awake! I loved the diversity portrayed in this story and the stunning illustrations. The references to real life people who followed their dreams, such as the Wright Brothers and Malala Yousafzai, provide great opportunities for young children to learn more about these important dreamers and to be inspired, too! I liked that the dreams weren't job-specific but more about what your heart is drawn towards, such as helping the environment or building community or even just inspiring others. This vagueness provides room for young dreams to grow rather than being limited to a few job titles. I also really enjoyed that the book encourages young children to start making their dreams come true now, that it's a gradual thing.

I loved this book! Full of tender emotion and warmth, I think this would make a great gift to young readers or even students graduating from high school as they look towards the next chapter in their lives. Thank you NetGalley and Thomas Nelson: Children's for the advanced copy. All opinions are my own.

Beautifully illustrated and inspired message encouraging us to dream and hope for the future. Such an important message in today’s uncertain world.

Dream Big for Kids is a great book about how your dreams are possible. I liked the different examples of types of dreams, and how God would want you to achieve them. The book is pretty religious, but in a positive way.
