Writer and illustrator, Gina C. Browning, says some of the verses in her poetry book first came to her in her dreams as she was recovering from surgery years ago. The poems and illustrations in Moonbeam Dreams gradually evolved into “a keenly rhymed, fantastical romp through a fantasy land, with weird and wonderful characters for readers of any age to enjoy.” Her poetry truly is for the young at heart. Browning thinks her dreams are fun and adventurous, as she always looks for the positive side to everything. Her book encourages children not to be afraid of the dark, and to believe in themselves and their abilities so that almost anything is possible. Browning says dreams can come true “either in daylight or night” if you believe in them strongly enough.

About The Book:
Moonbeam Dreams is a delightful children's fantasy book and a wonderful bed time story so perfect for all the little people, like my Grandson's, to all who are "young at heart"! Gina browning brilliantly invites us all to visit the "land of Beddie-Byes" with her bright and beautiful illustrations along with her Dr.Seuss- like- rhymes.
The book begins with the invitation to put on "white wings of love" that will take you anywhere in fantasy land. I love Gina's choice of words that paint pictures for the reader such as: "Imagine your bed in a bowl of sweet cream - floating down rivers of marbles and beads."
Then with this easy read picture book, you'll continue with the journey meeting very interesting characters created from Gina's wonderful imagination such as newts in lycra pantsuits, blue frogs in the trees, butterflies dripping with gems from their wings and gorgeous illustrations of mermaids and seahorses that are a delight for any young reader to see!
What I especially love about Moonbeam Dreams is the warm, positive, fun loving story that encourages children to keep dreaming... to really believe and wish "the right wish"! Gina concludes with, "The sky is NO limit! So let yourself IN it! Whatever you wish will be right!"
5 Stars and I recommend Moonbeam Dreams to friends... worth buying!
