I Dreamt... : A Book About Hope

(3) K-3 Translated by Elisa Amado. For a fundraising project for the IBBY Fund for Children in Crisis, twelve Mexican artists have pooled their talents to create a beautiful, thought-provoking meditation on violence. With illustrations that swing between satirical and ominous and text like "I dreamt of pistols that shoot butterflies...of drug lords who only sell soap bubbles," this book is best used in discussions with older children.
