Dreams for Our Daughters
About this deal
For me, evokes memories of the daughter I wanted for, my unexpected adopted daughter who we upended our lives for. A glorious tale encouraging young girls to become leaders, to know their potential and believe in their worth.
Encouraging and inspirational, putting into the most beautiful words what most of us dream of for our daughters. A companion book with a similar alliterative title, Songs for Our Sons, by this same writing/illustrating duo offers a comparable message to newborn sons. This is a poetic introduction to what it means to grow up as a girl in the challenging times we live in, and all of the dazzling possibilities the world has to offer. This lavishly foiled, inspiring picture book is the perfect gift for every key moment in a girl's life, from birth to graduation.POETRY Dreams for Our Daughters By Ruth Doyle, Illustrated by Ashling Lindsay, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2020, 32 pp. She has an undergraduate degree in visual communication and a Master of Arts degree in design, both from the Belfast School of Art. Her work has been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Illustration Award and shortlisted for the Waterstones Book Prize, The Klaus Flugge Prize for Picturebook Illustration and the AOI Illustration Awards. Again, this is a perfect gift for parents to celebrate the life-journey of their daughters and will ring true at all key life moments; birth, going off to school or university, or heading off into the world on your own; a gentle, poetic reminder of the dreams to always carry along the way and to be yourself, always…proudly and with great heart.
It should be in every library and on the shelf of every little girl (and some young-at-heart ones too). Inspired by wishes that most girls have thought about at one point in their life; whether it be dreaming to cast spells or simply climb trees. The illustrations flow across the pages, pulling you happily through the story with the same quality that Ashling Lindsay brought to her delicate but beautiful book The Night Box.With stunning, dreamlike illustrations, wishes and hopes for this new little girl carry us through time-travel, the frontier of space, exploration of the planet, daring visions of dragons, wolves and incredible sea-creatures, flights of fancy and the real world. Daughters are encouraged to choose challenging occupations, to be champions of change, and to make the earth a safe and friendly space for all of humanity.
