Winner, Mom's Choice Gold MedalMore than just a bedtime story, this enchanting book tells the tale of one little chicken that, with the support of her barnyard friends and the wise moon, has the courage to make her dream come true. The message of the story is uplifting and will encourage children to realize their dreams and talk about them with those they love. Sweet, vibrant illustrations and the rhythm of each character's actions rippling out toward a positive outcome will engage readers of all ages. Included are bonus activities to inspire children to share and work together to realize their dreams.


 "[Little Banty Chicken and the Big Dream] set me to dreaming my own dream before I got past page 5. The book also reminds us that everyone needs a 'moon' with whom to share big dreams."   — Melodie Davis, author, Whatever Happened to Dinner?

"[Little Banty Chicken and the Big Dream] teaches kids there's no reason to be 'chicken' about sharing their dreams and making them come true!"  —Susan M. Heim, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women
