The Hidden Worlds is a charming new juvenile fiction book by Sandra Ingerman and Katherine Wood. Through an adventurous tale addressing environmental pollution, it teaches middle school children about the power of shamanic practice and shared dreaming to find solutions to a critical issue in waking life.

In the story, Isaiah and his three friends, George, Rose, and Magna discover they can share spontaneous night dreams together. They encounter power animals, bear, octopus, giraffe, and panther who lend them special protection when an eagle guides them to a pond surrounded by dead fish and birds.

In waking reality, they skip school hunch hours to investigate a sinister plan to dump toxic chemicals into local waterways. With the assistance of their power animals and the elements of fire, wind and water they use shamanic journeys as a group to explore possible approaches for bringing the issue to the attention of appropriate agencies and government officials.

The Hidden Worlds: Conclusion

Hidden Worlds is an easy read, and the notion of shared dreaming is a theme that will appeal to young teen readers. The lively characters represent diverse segments of a school community, and readers learn that from dreams come answers and solutions to important questions and problems. I can imagine this story being expanded into a series for children and young adults.
