This is a simple, cute, well written children book with great illustrations. This story teaches children how bad it is to bully someone. I would recommend this book for children under the age of 5 years.

Jack's Dreams Come To Life

Jack’s Dreams Come To Life by Sara Jackson

A dog named Jack, lives with his other animal friends on a ranch. After seeing what mischief he can get himself into, and not finding any, he falls asleep. He dreams of being chased by a giant squirrel. When he falls down a hole, he lands in his toy box, on top of his favorite squeak toys. While playing with the cow, the others (horses, pigs, and ducks) start to grow and move around. Soon all the squeak toys circle Jack and he must find a way out. When he sees an opening, a large duck blocks his path. Jack and the duck try to out bark and out quack each other. Pretty soon Jack sees an opening and makes a run for it. As he does, all the squeak toys vanish in a puff of smoke and a cow sneezing on him awakens Jack. Thinking the cow is his squeak toy, Jack runs inside the house and looks inside his toy box to see if all the squeak toys are there.

Great children story. A puppy named Jack falls asleep and dreams that all his toys come alive. My granddaughter really enjoyed this story.
The illustrations are wonderful and the story is well written. I would put the reading level a little lower at age group 4-7.
