An Awesome Book

Dallas Clayton just sent over my very own copy of An Awesome Book, his children’s book about the importance of dreams. He toured around reading his book to as many kids as he possible and for every book he sold, he gave one away. I have to admit I got a little bit emotional as I read it, books like this are necessary!

    Dallas Clayton is a good man for making a book like this for kids, Kids have very little inspiration these days, other authors of children’s book should follow in his footsteps and create books with imagination like this…I’ll be purchasing this book for my niece and nephew. Has Dallas Clayton created any more books?
