Publishers Description Where does sea meet sky? Where does sound meet color? Where does song meet soul? Here is a place where children run, splash, and sing, on an island in the West Indies, in a world that is nothing short of magical. Rachel Isadora's glowing watercolors and lyrical, evocative text celebrate the things that make the Caribbean a very special home. "The poetic text encourages the reader to visualize the meeting of the waves and the sand, wind and hill, song and soul, and to imagine the activities that follow." ("The Horn Book") "Isadora's pictures move and sway like a Caribbean breeze." ("Booklist")

Reviews - What do customers think about Caribbean Dream (Picture Puffins)?
A winner! Jul 11, 1999
My children love this new book by Ms. Isadora. I am a teacher and look for books where Afro-American children and situations are portrayed in a favorable light and with respect. I foound that this book not only does justice to a part of the world I come from, but gives children here in the US a realistic and wholesome look at life in the Islands. We all loved the illustrations and the simple text, which actually got our minds thinking and exploring the meanings behind each picture. I know teachers everywhere will love adding this book to their collection.
Gorgeous illustrations compliment Isadora's eloquent words. Mar 24, 1999
My daughter brought Isadora's book home from the library. Our family read it aloud last night and all agreed the author is a wonderful poet and gifted artist..We visited the Caribbean last year and after reading this book, my husband, daughter and I, complimented her beautifully written text and luscious artwork...Isadora captured the islands and its people to perfection.
