I Dreamed I Was a Bird by Christopher P. Stanley is the cute story of a little boy who dreamed he was a bird one night while sleeping. He sees a lot of exciting things while flying in the sky and soaring over tall and towering trees. Birds come out as he whistles some merry songs and he feels he belongs there with them. He then sees a puddle and thinks it's a perfect place for his bird splash. He does not know how long he was gone, but he knows one thing: being a bird is definitely fun.

The story shows the imagination of a little boy and reaches out to young readers. The illustrations are full of life and color and they give a good pace and movement to the boy's imagination. The characters come alive. It's an excellent bedtime storybook for kids, and parents and grandparents will enjoy reading it out to their kids and grandkids. The story is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The story encourages kids to break down all the barriers and dream about everything.

The boy's flight as a bird is indeed very exciting and, written in rhyming verses, the words are lyrical and filled with exuberance. It's a story that all kids and parents will enjoy as it will make them dream and take them to distant places where they have not thought of going earlier, and do things they otherwise wouldn't do.
