|My Dream in a Forest Green is a poem, or rather, a series of poems: twenty-seven limericks bouncing with rhyme and rhythm, telling the amazing dream of a young boy whose caring soul brightens the lives of every animal he meets on his journey. Upon hearing her son eagerly recount his dream, his loving mother is overjoyed and overwhelmed by her child’s humility and grace.
Each limerick in My Dream in a Forest Green is accompanied by a beautiful water-color illustration. These illustrations bring to life the words of the poem, conveying and mirroring the gentle tone of the story.
