When Jack goes to sleep he has wonderful dream but never gets to take them with him. One night he decides to do just that. So he takes a dreamsack inside his dream and puts all his amazing dreams in it. But you will have to read the story to see if he is able to bring the dreams back home. This story is one of my favorites because I wish i could bring my dreams home with me too. The illustration in this story makes the story so much better and cuter. ( )

In this story Jack teaches us that the real world is better than dreams. When he becomes curious as to why he can never remember his dreams, he goes on an adventure into all dreams everywhere. Jack sees the strangest creatures and figures in these dreams and by the end can't wait to go back home. He learns real dreams come true when you are awake to see them. This book would be enjoyed by many k-3 students because of the imagination and creativity it brings. ( )

Jack has an idea and tries his hardest to make his dream a reality. With effort and hard work, Jack makes his idea work. He encourages others by his success. There are lots of dreamy ideas that could not possible be real, but has a real story line to it. ( )

I love the hidden message in this book. The last sentence is this book is the best. "The best kind of dreams are the wide-awake dreams, "And those," said Jack, " are AMAZING!"" This sentence is accompanied by pictures of a mother with a new child, two people in love, and a boy with a new puppy. ( )

"The trouble with dreams," says young Jack, "is that you're always asleep when you have them." Ah-ha...but what if you WEREN'T? That's the answer this story explores, as Jack wakes up from a dream and gets to experience the wild magical ride it takes him on. Fun for talking about "imaginary" versus real.
