Welcome to a magical world of endless curiosity. You are a sleeping salamander. A dancing octopus. A speeding falcon…even a sneaking tiger and playful human child. As one dream slips into another, every page turn immerses you in the sensory wonder of the world and all its creatures, from the ocean depths to soaring skies, and everything in between. Each creature dreams and experiences life in a different way. Each is connected despite their differences.

It all starts with a dream.

Welcome to a magical world of endless curiosity, shimmering senses, and safe, snug spaces. You are a sleeping salamander…a dancing octopus…a graceful elephant…a sneaking tiger…even a playful child, full of wonder. Here you are, in every dreaming creature, sound asleep, and yet…wide awake.


Every Dreaming Creature is a breathtaking children’s book that captivates our imaginations and hearts! The details described for each creature was creatively and realistic to each one. We loved feeling like we were this creature living in the world.

This book allowed us to feel empathy and to appreciate this amazing creatures. We also were able to imagine ourselves dreaming of what creature we would love to be in our own dreams. This was a great conversation to have during reading time. We love stories that allow further dialogue as it helps the child retell the story.

I would dream of being a lioness, protecting my cub and providing for my family. Nikki would be a Clydesdale Horse who would gallop along the valley with lightning fast reflexes.  It was so fun to explore other creatures and what we would do if we were one. We could see similarities between our own characteristics too.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give Every Dreaming Creature 5 sneaking tigers out of 5!  Feel the interconnectedness through this story that brings poetic storytelling and vibrant artwork to reading time. A true masterpiece awaits in this story for your little one!
