10 Books That Inspire Kids to Dream

Care to Share?

One of the biggest goals I have as a parent is to encourage and equip my kids to pursue their God-given dreams. Thankfully there are several ways to inspire kids to dream. It can happen through heart-to-heart conversations, through our homeschool lifestyle, or something as simple as a children’s book.

Today I’m sharing some of those lovely books with you. Some of these titles are my personal favorites and some are books I’ve got on my wishlist, but all of them are great choices if you’re looking for books to inspire and encourage your dreamer.

10 Books That Inspire Kids to Dream

1. The North Star

I probably shouldn’t share my favorite book on this list first, but I can’t think of a better book to inspire kids than Peter Reynolds’ The North Star. At the risk of giving away too much, you know it’s a must-read book when “The end” is nowhere in the pages. 

2. What Do You Do With an Idea?

If you’ve got a dreamer in your family, Kobi Yamada’s What Do You Do With an Idea? is a book you’ll love sharing. It encourages kids to keep dreaming, let those dreams and ideas grow, and then see where they’ll lead. 




8. You and Me and the Wishing Tree

Since wishes and dreams go hand in hand, You and Me and the Wishing Tree is one you don't want to miss if you're looking for books that inspire kids to dream.  This one is truly a charming and magical experience!
