Gwensie’s dreams are so big that she often cannot fall asleep!  Listen in as Gwensie shares her life ambitions with her grandmother before bedtime.  The wise grandmother listens carefully to each one: Actress, Ballerina, Princess, President, Baker, Singer, Veterinarian, Firefighter, Toy Maker, Scientist, Botanist, Mathematician, Comedian, and Author.
The grandmother then uses each dream as an opportunity to teach Gwensie a lesson about building a strong character, and staying grounded, humble, and giving no matter what one achieves in life.

That is, until the dreamer gets tired and is ready to start counting her sheep.
