Gold Medal at the 2012 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. With lyrical, stirring text and stunning, evocative artwork, this picture book offers a moving ode to dreamers, to peace, and to finding hope for ending war once and for all.
In a country ravaged by war, a girl looks up at the sky, closes her eyes and her imagination begins to soar, far away from hatred, from sadness. She flies up high, high above into the sky, until she envisions that long-awaited dream in which we all hold hands. She invites us to dream with her so that in her country, Afghanistan, peace may reign forever. Her dream is directed to all regions, she enters homes, homes, families, hearts.
An ode to peace and tolerance.

"In this glowing picture book translated from Spanish, a small Afghan girl dreams of peace. (…) True to a child’s experience, the story’s power is in the contrasts, and young children will recognize that the basic things they take for granted are missing in others’ daily lives." [Booklist]
