Once Upon A Dream Video

Introduce the wonders of poetry to your child with Once Upon A Dream. The open theme means they can write about whatever inspires them.

Will they enter a world of imagination and write about the weird and wonderful things they see in their dreams? Perhaps they'll write about their future hopes and aspirations, either for themselves or for the world. They could even explore the darker side of dreams and venture into fear and nightmares.
