When My Baby Dreams of Fairy Tales (by Adele Enersen) is another unique title! Babies and children will love looking at photos of this baby napping, surrounded by picturescapes her mother creates while she slumbers: “Once upon a time,
Mila dreamed she was a princess dressed in pink . . .
or perhaps Goldilocks,
or even Little Red Riding Hood.
When Mila dreams, she dreams in fairy tales, and all her wishes come true.
This imaginative journey through the dreamscapes of a newborn is a story of faraway kingdoms, enchanted forests, and above all, the love between a mother and her daughter.”
