Dream On!

Rochel Burstyn

Have you ever woken up in the morning only to lie in bed, trying to grasp the memory of the dream you just had… but like a soap bubble, it flitters out of your grasp… and then pop! It’s gone. What are dreams? Why do we dream? And why on earth can’t we remember them most of the time? If you’ve ever wondered, then the next few pages will be a dream come true!
