Dreams Can Come True by Daniel Britton

Review

I read this short fairy tale to my 7 year old and he absolutely loved it. The book is superbly written and shows just how dreams can come true with the right advice, hard work and a bit of luck. The theme of entrepreneurship is evident throughout and Tom (the main character) is a fantastic role model for children not to give up and chase their dreams. The illustrations are excellent and support the story throughout. Recommended.
