An Awesome Book by Dallas Clayton: Free online

What it is:  Dallas Clayton created An Awesome Book for his son.  The book is about the idea of dreaming BIG and never giving up.  He decided to self publish and worked hard to spread the love of reading the world over.  Since then, Clayton has offered his book free online (lucky us!) and started a foundation to give away one book for every copy of An Awesome Book he sells.

How to integrate An Awesome Book into the classroom: An Awesome Book is an awesome book about dreaming big dreams.  It is a great book that encourages kids to believe in themselves and in those fantastic dreams that they have.  An Awesome Book is wonderful for reading as a whole class on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected computer.  You could also set up An Awesome Book on classroom computers for students to read through independently.  Fantastic!

When students are finished reading, ask them to create their own awesome books with their big dreams.

  1. Hi Kelly,

    I work at a digital kids book publishing company called Storypanda. We recently worked with Dallas Clayton to publish one of his new books on the iPad. Dallas narrates the heartwarming bedtime story about a dinosaur who dreams his birthday party is on the moon. Dallas’ unique illustrations and inspirational messages come to life in digital format with sounds and animations on the iPad.

    The book is called Dallas The Dinosaur’s Dream Diary and is available tomorrow December 20th. I would love to show you the new book app. Let me know if you’d be interested in reviewing it.

    Thank you!
