Summary of The Dreamer
Torria lives with her family in a bomb shelter during the war. Every night her grandmother reads her a bedtime story. And before she goes to sleep, she’ll ask: When will the war be over?”
Like all small children, Toria still believes dreams come true and longs for peace to return. So, every night she dreams about the things she wishes would happen.
My Take on The Dreamer
The Dreamer is a magical story of child-like faith. Parents will enjoy this inspiring story just as much as their little kiddos. It is a story of hope and belief that dreams can come true.
Children will enjoy the rhyme-like format of the story and the repetition throughout the book. They will love to draw or write their dreams in the space provided, which is an excellent reason to get a paperback copy for your child instead.
War is a strange concept for most children, but through this book, they will learn about a different type of life in a war-ridden country and how there can still be hope and dreams even in the most dire circumstances.
Should you get The Dreamer for your child?
The Dreamer is a fantastic story inspiring us never to lose hope and our belief in miracles. It exposes kiddos to a different life type and helps them develop compassion for others facing tough challenges.
Please also read my review of Imagine: The Magic of the Mysterious Lights, about the power of visualisation.
Does your child face tough challenges at school due to conflict, bullying, or maybe a disability? Do you think the story of Torri inspired her always to have hope and keep on dreaming? We would love to hear from you. Please share with us in the comments.

Why Read or Rot?
I have started reading at the age of four. I can remember how I often read under the covers with a flashlight when I was supposed to sleep.
During my early school years, we visited the library once a week. I couldn’t pick out my new book fast enough! By the end of the period, I would have finished it already, leaving me with nothing to read for the rest of the week!
Growing up, Fridays was the highlight of my week. Dad would pack the whole family into the car, and off we go! You guessed right – to the library! We were a family of readers.
In my adult years, I’ve developed a variety of interests like technology, photography, gardening and even writing. But reading was and will always be a part of my life!
Reading for me is like breathing. If I cannot read, my soul will quietly rot away…
