So what is Dream of the Echoes?
The mission of the Dream of the Echoes series is to pass on to the next generation some of the most inspirational Notre Dame football stories in an intimate, clever and creative storytelling environment for both parent and child. The books are ideally designed for children ages 2-7, although many customers outside that age group are enjoying the series. The illustrations are captivating and allow parents to teach children traditions that go beyond what is delivered in the rhyming text.
