The Dreamer by Pam Munoz Ryan

Ryan, Pam Munoz & Sis, Peter The Dreamer, 353 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2010. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Neftali loves learning new words and adding things to his collection. He can read well and is an excellent writer. The only problem is that his father doesn't approve. Neftali wants to be a poet and his father keeps insisting he will be a doctor, dentist, or business man. I love that Neftali never gives up his dreams. Even though his father discourages him, he perseveres and keeps following his dreams. ES, MS - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: CH
