I could have sworn I already wrote down my thoughts on this book, but I cannot seem to find it, so I’ll tell you again. Dallas Clayton has a vivid imagination and the talent to get it on the page to share with others. An Awesome Book and it looks like those that will come after it are different and here to challenge our kiddos. Think outside the box and do not be afraid to challenge yourself to be who you are. Dream big dreams, dream little dreams, dream dreams that matter and dreams that don’t. All in all, just dream and do not limit yourself — that is what I find in the pages of this picture book.

Like I said before, Dallas Clayton has a vivid imagination and the talent to get it on the page to share with others. An Awesome Book and it looks like those that will come after it are different and here to challenge our kiddos. Think outside the box and do not be afraid to challenge yourself to be who you are. Dream big dreams, dream little dreams, dream dreams that matter and dreams that don’t. All in all, just dream and do not limit yourself — that is what I find in the pages of this picture book.

Specifically with An Awesome Book of Love! there are so many ways to show and express love whether opposites or the same, love is love no matter what we call it.

I look forward to seeing An Awesome Book of Thanks in the future too.

My name is Dallas Clayton. I write kid’s books. The first one is called An Awesome Book. It’s about dreaming big. When I was a kid I dreamt about traveling around the world meeting new people every day, having amazing experiences and sharing the stories from those experiences with other new people. That’s pretty much what I do now. When I am not doing that I am probably writing, drawing, having my mind blown by my seven year old child or jumping into a large body of water. If you have a large body of water you want me to jump in, a school I should read at, something else awesome I should know of, or if you just want to talk you should check out my website (www.dallasclayton.com) and email me. I love strangers.
