    1. This book is about an artist that dreams about oceans, grass, trees, and stars. When he dreams of them he creates them. Then he starts dreaming and creating ocean animals and land animals. Then, he starts dreaming about other artists that could move through the areas he created. The artists he created started creating artists of their own and they all called him God.




    2. You can also read this review on my blog, Caught Read Handed.I suppose I should have realized as I flipped through that this book was a retelling of the story of creation. This book depicts God as an artist who daydreams and creates the things he sees in his dreams. “As he dreamed in his mind, he would see something he hadn’t seen before. Something beautiful. Something new.”He sees stars and decides to cut them out of paper, and then he has the heavens. “This is the story of the one who [...]


    3. The story, marvelously told beholds the concept of God as an artist who dreams of the stars and then the heavens become a reality, who dreams of the heavens that twinkled and shone and then stars appear, who made an earth and the artist held it in his hand and borrowed light and behold, the dynamic shape took form.And, one by one, the earth is filled with marvel, of dry earth that is colorful and then blue water that the artist can float upon, and then there was green and trees and forests. Waki [...]


    4. I swoon for Barry Moser, especially after meeting him one day at Waterstone's and discovering we shared the same disdain for the "FICTION" section circa 1993. We just didn't believe that anything being printed then as "FICTION" was terribly better than anything being printed in kids' lit. In fact, we were adamant in our belief that kids' lit was kicking "FICTION"s snooty tuckus. So, I'll jump all over a Moser-illustrated book any day of the week. The Dreamer is a simple and nice retelling of the [...]


    5. The creation story told with hn artist decides to make what he sees in his head. Goes through 6 days of creation. Makes humans who are "his children" and they call him God.Themes -- art, creationThe pictures in this book would be a good example of what watercolors can do. I would read this book and then have students create their own world with original vegetation and animals.


    6. I thought this book was great! I probably would not be allowed to read this in a public school, but if I was teaching in a Christian school, I would read this book and see how long it would take them to realize it is the story of creation, but with Rylant's version of it. The students could compare and contrast the book to the original Bible story.


    7. An artist dreams of creating a world, and does: stars, earth, oceans, grasses, trees, animals. But the world lacks something that will see, and understand - something like the creator, an artist. So he sketches an artist, and the world begins to fill up with artists. Barry Moser's watercolor illustrations are terrific, as usual.


    8. Cynthia Rylant is a master of filling up ordinary words with deep, beautifully artistic meaning and linking them together to form a lovely story that can be short or long, sad or happy, each one of them diverse and significant in a sharply unique way. A wide variety of readers will find "The Dreamer" to be a captivating and vividly telling picture book.


    9. This is the book that inspired the discussion for the Adult Forum. Cricket Hunter suggested it. I love the imagery of the creator as a dreamer who creates from inspiration. Beautifully told and lovely illustrations.


    10. Ryan said: He liked the part where the artist (GOD) cut a star. I got 2 favorites. I like the part of the earth. I liked the blue ocean. It reminded me of Florida. These 3 trees have green leaves; one of my favorite colors. I liked all this fog and the person standing right here.


    11. As a young artist daydreams and gradually creates stars, oceans, and grasses we begin to sense that the young artist is actually God, and that the story is a re-imagined creation story. Moser's watercolors celebrate the natural beauty of our world and Rylant's text is moving but not heavy.


    12. Love this book so much I sought out a copy (publisher reprint please I would give it as gifts). The longing in the heart of the artist is felt through the words and images. The love that is at the heart of creation and the relationship is calls forth is amazing. A beautiful book.


    13. I loved this book! With each new Cynthia Rylant book I read, I am more convinced that she is one of the best authors for children ever. THE DREAMER tells the story of Creation with gentleness and originality. The illustrations by Barry Moser beautifully compliment the story.





    14. A creation story depiciting God as an artist. A interesting story, but not something I would include in my classroom.
