Every child has bad dreams. But the Bible tells us that our God is strong and loving and wants to protect us. And children can cling to that wonderful truth, using it to help drive fearful feelings away. In The Dream Quilt, a little boy named Michael is having trouble with bad dreams. Then one day, Michael learns about the special quilt game Granny Rose used to play with his mother when she was little and had bad dreams. He wants to play, too. The game works. Michael’s dreams are now quite lovely. But when the quilt gets taken away, he learns that it wasn’t the blanket that protected him at all–and that the only thing he really needs to feel secure is the God who keeps him warm and loved…and safe. Through repeated rhymes, bright colors, and a charming story line, The Dream Quilt helps to instill in children a confidence in God, as well as reinforce the bond between parent and child. Best of all, it gives moms and dads a greatly-needed, easy-to-use tool to help get children through their toughest nights–and teach them about the God who will love them throughout all their days.
