Reviewer:P. Nelson – See all my reviews
I am a pre-kindergarten teacher. My students hung on every word when I read this book to them. They could relate to the subject matter. I think they thought that thinking about the different colors at night could help them get over fear themselves. This is a captivating, beautifully illustrated, relevent book for preschoolers.

This book is a favorite in our house. The illustrations are eye-catching and unique, the story is smooth and entertaining, and the message is one that will stick with you. The Dream Quilt may be directed at juveniles, but I guarantee adults will enjoy it, as well.

This is a sweet story of how a Mom uses the squares on an old quilt to help ease her child’s fears at bed time. The illustrations are sure to catch a child’s eye; they’re so colorful. It’s a beautiful story and it’s a book that’s beautiful to look at.

This book has impressed children of all ages with the security in kowing God’s love. I liked the colorful descriptions and the peaceful tone of the book. One child asked me if he could have a quilt with colors so he could dream colorful dreams , too. Awesome book – hope Mrs. Ryan writes more!

( Review) This book is wonderful!!, September 1, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
As a future educator (and a future parent–someday!), I believe this is one of the best books I have ever read for children. It uses one of the most important tools for learning in young ages–repetition. I loved the story line and the wonderful illustrations. I found something new in the pictures each time I looked at them. Every child should learn this wonderful lesson from this book–God is strong and loving!

( Review) One of the best bedtime books I’ve found for my children., August 23, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
The Dream Quilt is a beautifully written and illustrated children’s bedtime book. The short simple text is great for both parents and early readers. The bright colorful illustration holds even the most active toddler’s attention. . . My daughter asks to read this book every night, and even wants to sleep with it under her pillow. Thank you Celeste Ryan and Mary Haverfield for giving us this beautiful book.
