For the Kids


Dream Big by Kat Kronengberg is a lovely book for young readers.

Kat Kronenberg’s Dream Big was an accidental find for me. I was in search of a book by the same title to check off a genre on the PopSugar 2017 reading challenge that I’m having fun with this year. As I shared with you in my review of another book by the same name, anything with “Dream Big” resonates with me. And since Duane’s goddaughter is a twin, I figured I couldn’t go wrong with this particular impulse purchase.

Besides, the main character in this one is a monkey. 😉 There’s no way I was going to pass up that fun!

I learned about Leslie Zimmerman’s book, Dream Big, while I was reading George W. Bush’s Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors.

Dream Big by Leslie Zimmerman inspires children to dream of what they can achieve while living in the moment.

Zimmerman, an Army Sergeant, served as a medic in Kuwait and later in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. She returned home with PTS and depression and was spotlighted in the former president’s book.
