BOOK OF DREAMS – Age 5
Son: It’s about a boy who dreams about being a spaceman. That picture on the cover’s the world. That yellow picture is the boy in bed – there’s the ladders. I know – it looks flat.

Mum: Why has he got 8 arms & legs?

Son: They’re not arms and legs! They’re on the bed – under the covers. They hold the bed up, otherwise why would he need the ladders?

Mum: Ah! Of course. What’s the story then?

Son: Once upon a time there lived a boy, he lived with his mummy and daddy. I was going to do it in chapters, then then I didn’t have time. Chapter 2 is when he had his dream and Chapter 1 is just telling you what’s first.

The bones of it

D: Why isn’t Aidan coming to play at Daniel’s house?

Me: Because Aidan and his mum and dad get tired and go to bed very early at the moment.

D: Why do they get tired?

Me: Because Aidan’s new little sister isn’t sleeping very well at night.

D: Why isn’t she sleeping very well?

Me: I don’t know – it might be something to do with her coming out of her mummy’s tummy too early. Maybe her body wasn’t quite ready to come out and is trying to get used to being outside of her mummy’s tummy. She might be doing a lot of growing at the moment.

D: Has she got a skeleton?

Me: Yes.

D: Do you know – dogs have skeletons too… but they’re DOG shaped?!
