I am so excited to talk with Kelly Bulkeley co-author of  Children’s Dreams: Understanding the Most Memorable Dreams and Nightmares of Childhood. When a child talks about a vivid nighttime dream, it can be difficult for adults to know how to respond. The book introduces readers to the basic psychology and neuroscience of dreaming, then explores dreams from early childhood through adolescence.
