Benjamin’s Dreadful Dream
Dreaming is a source of fascination for most children, and the topic can lead to examinations of questions about knowledge, and the relationship between reality and experience. Benjamin’s Dreadful Dream is Alan Baker’s picture book about the hamster Benjamin, who one night decides to get up and have a snack when he can’t sleep. Quickly, all kinds of weird adventures begin to happen to him. Then he finds himself back in his own bed.
“Was it all a dreadful dream?” he wonders.
