The Good Dream Amulet is a beautiful story that teaches children that they have the power to shape their dreams at nighttime. In this book, Mama gives Cassidy a magical amulet which has been passed through their family for generations. Cassidy learns that the stone is actually a piece of a star, kissed by an angel. But the magic will not work without Cassidy's help. As Mama explains, "This amulet is like a cup. Happy thoughts will fill it up."
When Cassidy grows up and eventually has a child of her own, she learns that the magic behind the amulet isn't just for children.
