Here’s To Your Dreams – A Teatime with Noah Book
Written by Dave Hollis
Illustrated by Arief Putra
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (November 8, 2022)
Childrens Book/Adventure Picture Book/Self-Esteem & Growth
In this adventure picture book that reinforces a child’s self-esteem, father of four and New York Times bestselling author Dave Hollis draws on the themes of his popular video series “Teatime with Noah” to help kids believe in themselves, have courage, and chase after their dreams.
The story begins with one of Daddy and Noah’s beloved father-daughter tea parties, as Daddy encourages young Noah to follow her dreams. Young readers will delight to see the tea party transform into a fantastical adventure as Noah discovers that she wants to be a ship captain. But soon everything goes wrong. Noah doesn’t know how to be a captain, and she doesn’t even have a ship! When she starts to build her own, things go from bad to worse. Through each hardship, Daddy guides Noah, empowering her to ride the waves of life with courage.
With vivid illustrations from Arief Putra and whimsical rhymes, Here’s to Your Dreams!
- Is for ages 4 to 8
- Encourages children to explore their own interests, pursue their dreams, and overcome obstacles
- Is a conversation-starter for topics such as self-esteem, bravery, and personal growth
- Is perfect for creating special daddy-daughter moments
- Is a great gift for birthdays, baby showers, adoption parties, gender reveal parties, and Father’s Day
With a fun and entertaining style, Dave Hollis tells a rollicking adventure story that encourages boys and girls to believe in themselves, not be afraid to make mistakes, and use their gifts–because nothing is out of their reach.
An adventure picture book that introduces self-esteem and overcoming obstacles. Children will follow along as a tea party between daddy and daughter magically transform into an adventure where Noah finds courage and solves problems while learning to believe in herself. I wouldn’t say this is a rhyming book and nor does it read smoothly throughout. The standout of the book by far is the illustrations which are fun and engaging. I loved how the puppy continues to appear throughout the pages.
