Meet Hildy who lived with her mama and papa and her little sister, Francesca. Hildy loved her parents and sister and they loved her too. Purple was Hildy's favorite color and she loved everything purple. Though Hildy was a happy little girl, sometimes she had bad dreams. She dreamed about monsters and sometimes she dreamed she was lost and could not find her mama. Her dreams were bad and Hildy did not know how to stop them. She tried to think happy thoughts, tried putting a blankie over her head, kept the night light on, and suddenly she remembered Mimi's Strategy. Mimi and Zeze were Hildy's grandparents who lived in Florida. Mimi always thought Hildy needed a strategy. Let's read this book to learn Mimi's Strategy to stop Hildy's bad dreams.
Mimi's Strategy: What to Do When You Have a Bad Dream by Linda Goudsmit is an adorable story and will help young readers understand good dreams and bad dreams and how to deal with bad dreams when they happen. The book will show them how good dreams and bad dreams come from one's imagination. The illustrations by Xavier Pom bring the characters and the scenes alive and make the story delightful and appealing. It is a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read aloud to kids and grandkids, especially to those kids who have bad dreams. Tutors can use it for read-aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries to show children that dreams, both good and bad, come from their imagination.
