Believe in Yourself and Your Dream Will Find You!
Every child is born with unique gifts and strengths, and as they grow, those begin to influence their interests and hobbies. As adults, we can sometimes see these gifts and tell our kids what they could—or should—be when they grow up. The problem is, kids can internalize our ideas for them as something they should want too.
In There’s No Dream Too Tall, Amie Dean offers a different approach—allowing kids the freedom to decide for themselves. Whether they want to be a teacher, a chef, a firefighter, a homemaker, or an architect, kids can look at their unique strengths and gifts and find their own way towards a future they will love.
The world is wide open; there’s no dream too tall.
For a boy or a girl, whether big or quite small!
There are millions of choices—no end to the list.
So, look deep in yourself and consider your gifts.
By showing kids that their different strengths can help them become who they want to be, we give them the power and permission to dream. And when we do that, they will believe that no matter how tall their dreams may be, they have what it takes to reach them!
