Just a Dream by Chris Van AllsburgThis is one of those books that came out when being green was a top notch priority while everyone was trying to get rich on offering helpful tips whether some of them made sense or not. At the same time although the concept was a good one there were some works that didnt carry quite as pressing a message while in a sense I would say this is one of them.
This isnt the type of book that you want children to learn to read on since the writing is in a large paragraph while at the same time being monotonous. After a while the reader gets the concept of what is going to happen more or less every time his bed floats off.
All in all I would rather recommend Schims books compared to this one or even Fern Gully for those who dont want to read (and I would only recommend movie one, not two) for those who would like to learn more about protecting the future around them. For those who may be interested in this particular book it can definitely be a starter on how our actions on the earth affect the future we may receive while also offering a few tips to help you get started on being more environmentally-friendly.

Young Walter is a careless boy who tosses rubbish on the grass, thinks recycling is a waste of time, and mocks his neighbor, Rose, for her delight in the tree she has just received for her birthday. Walter longs to live in the future, which he imagines to be full of robots, tiny personal planes, and machines that make life easier. One night when he falls asleep, his wish to live in the future comes true. However, his dreams carry him into a future not filled with the robots and machines he believes will make life better, but instead ravaged by the careless mistakes of the past. Walter travels in his sleep to the midst of an endless garbage dump on his own street, to a tree in a forest that is about to be cut down, to the top of a smokestack belching pollution, to the middle of a fishless sea, and to other places that show him possible negative versions of the future. When he wakes up, he is a changed boy.
