However big it seems . . .
Childhood dreams sometimes seem impossible—especially if you want to be a football player like Alex or a pilot like Bobby. Two boys decide to chase those dreams, and with a special song to inspire them and a lot of determined practice, they grow up to live the life they always wanted.
Bestselling author Karen Kingsbury and NFL quarterback Alex Smith team up to give us this heartwarming tale with inspiring words and pictures, which is based on true events. Go Ahead and Dream encourages children to work hard and to never give up on their dreams.
New York Times bestselling inspirational author Karen Kingsbury teams up with NFL quarterback Alex Smith to deliver a heartwarming story about never giving up on your dreams—even when setbacks seem too big to overcome.
Alex and his best friend, Bobby, have high hopes for their futures. They may only be in grade school, but Alex dreams of throwing touchdown passes in the NFL, while Bobby fantasizes about soaring above the clouds as a pilot. But as they make moves to follow their dreams, trials arise that could deter them. With a little encouragement from Alex’s grandfather and a lot of dedication, they learn to never give up on their dreams, no matter how big and unreachable they may seem.
With illustrations by Greg Banning, Smith’s account of his life as a boy is paired perfectly with Kingsbury’s signature uplifting words. This encouraging picture book will inspire readers to give their all, try their hardest, and . . . go ahead and dream!
