About this deal

In this blog I hope to review 'books for boys' that I feel will help parents and primary school staff to pick stimulating stories to share with boys and girls too! With stunning, dreamlike illustrations, wishes and hopes for this new little girl carry us through time-travel, the frontier of space, exploration of the planet, daring visions of dragons, wolves and incredible sea-creatures, flights of fancy and the real world. POETRY Dreams for Our Daughters By Ruth Doyle, Illustrated by Ashling Lindsay, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2020, 32 pp. This book is newly discovered treasure, glittering with promise and joy from the minute you open its covers.

It’s a poetic introduction to what it means to be raised as a girl and the dazzling possibilities the world has to offer. We'll keep in touch with fresh newness and offers so that you're first in the know of what's happening! Her work has been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Illustration Award and shortlisted for the Waterstones Book Prize, The Klaus Flugge Prize for Picturebook Illustration and the AOI Illustration Awards. Beginning in early childhood, her need for love and suffering took her from the prim surroundings of a Norfolk girls’ school to the secret, latex-clad, rope-bound, whip-lashed delights of the Tokyo role-playing scene.Daughters are encouraged to choose challenging occupations, to be champions of change, and to make the earth a safe and friendly space for all of humanity. The illustrations flow across the pages, pulling you happily through the story with the same quality that Ashling Lindsay brought to her delicate but beautiful book The Night Box.

Her previous books include Dreams for Our Daughters (Eerdmans), The Tide (Tiger Tales Press), and The Night Box (Clarion), which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.While the poetic story seems to encourage a "save the World" ecology goal, taken as a whole, it is only a part of the totality of this sweet book. With the empowerment of girls at its heart, it could so easily have fallen into the trap of being a book that you think you ‘should’ read rather than want to, but it is something else entirely.
