This companion to Dream Animals celebrates the imagination and will have children dreaming both day and night!
Emily Winfield Martin's newest picture book shows readers that letting their imaginations run free will lead them into fantastical day dreams. Whether cloud-gazing or wandering through a museum, reading a book or playing in a tide-pool, the children in this picture book find themselves in places  inhabited by magical creatures such as dragons, unicorns, griffins, and jackalopes. A whimsical rhyme accompanies the dream-worthy illustrations.

Emily Martin does it again. With the companion to her Dream Animals, Martin takes readers on a whimsical adventure to the land of wonder and dreams with Day Dreamers. There's nothing more magical than a picture book that brings to life an enchanting world of imagination. With creatures you wish you could fly through the clouds on, Martin's lovely illustrations and beautiful words create a book that readers of all ages will enjoy.

I have been an Emily Martin fan since I first discovered her Etsy shop, The Black Apple years ago. I absolutely love that her whimsical illustrations now graces the pages of children's books. I have a few of her framed artwork in my library and office, and I love that now I'm able to purchase her artwork in the form of children's pictures books.

I highly recommend picking up Day Dreamers and it's companion, Dream Animals. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
