Children's book author George Long has announced that a Teacher's Edition Lesson Plan for K-2 teachers is now available for 'Pocketful Of Dreams'. 'Pocketful OFDreams' teaches children valuable character building lessons such as integrity, honesty, taking the initiative, telling the truth and much more. The book is available in a Teacher’s Edition, which includes a unit plan for K-2 teachers, written by a veteran first grade teacher.

It’s bedtime, and Momma tucks her girls into bed and says, “Happy Dreams.” Karen and Sue are off to sleep. Floating in a midnight sky, they dream their favorite dream. They dream of a garden wonderland where flowers bloom like candy for the picking. When they wake, they crave the sweets from their dream. To earn candy money, the two sisters open a lemonade stand—the symbol of the entrepreneurial spirit of America’s youth. They soon learn that running a real-life business is not as easy as picking candy from trees in a dreamscape. A hole in their money bag leaves them penniless, and they face hard lessons about responsibility and doing the right thing. Resourceful and imaginative, the sisters set a great example of how teamwork and honesty pay off.

“My mission is to create life-enriching stories for children and their parents to enjoy.”

All of Long's books are 'dyslexic friendly' as Mr. Long is dyslexic. He considers this to be an advantage, and he learned early on to compensate for this "disadvantage". The text boxes featured in 'Pocketful of Dreams' are designed with the dyslexic reader in mind.

Readers and educators alike have high praise for "Pocketful Of Dreams":
" . . . the lessons of integrity, honesty, taking the initiative, telling the truth and being responsible are timeless. There are many opportunities to use this book as a springboard in lessons about consumers and producers, character building and so much more."

"I like this book because the character building lessons are easy to learn."

"Your story is beautiful! It is written with such warmth and honesty. The conclusion is neat and concise, yet still leaves room for imagination and dreaming. This heartfelt story would definitely be loved by the kids and parents at our library."

“Pocketful of Dreams: Teacher’s Edition” comes in hardback and paperback print editions. The regular edition comes in paperback and both can be purchased at Long's website and on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Both editions can also be found in digital format on Kindle and iBooks.

The Teacher's Study Guide document is available in pdf format at his website.

George Long is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at More information is available at his website.

George Long's mother instilled in him her love for language. He uses that love to create life-enriching stories for children and their parents to enjoy.

'Pocketful of Dreams' is the first book in the 'Daddy Always Says' series. The text boxes featured in this book are designed with the dyslexic reader in mind. Although George struggled with dyslexia in his youth, he has learned to compensate for his learning disability.

He hopes this story encourages readers of all abilities to work hard and see their dreams come true.
