Summary: From the heart of a man whose greatest wish and wildest dream in life is to be a father comes a wonderfully touching story of adoption and of dreams coming true. Author Brian Tessier and artist Donna Estabrooks collaborate to create The Wildest Dream, a heartwarming read that brings forth inspiring messages of hope, parenting, and faith. This book is the sibling of The Greatest Wish, as Tessier has two children, so there must be two books. The Wildest Dream, while able to stand out on its own follows The Greatest Wish. Everyone has dreams and these wild dreams can come true if one truly believes. In this beautifully crafted picture book, the author a single, gay father, shares with everyone the adoption story he tells his second son. But because of the depth of this story’s message, this can very well be applied and shared with those who want to convey how special someone is to them. The central message, is to communicate just how special someone is in your life, to have hope and persevere. With vivid colors, abstract images, and vibrant paintings, the artist has adroitly captured the real essence of the story; thus, perfectly complementing the author’s words and message. The Wildest Dream was birthed from wishes, created by hope, and written in love for all who deserve to know that they are someone’s wildest dream.
