The former teacher came up with the idea through years of teaching. Mary Baumgartner wrote the book, while her daughter Grayce was the illustrator.

The book, What If It Wasn't a Dream?, is described on Amazon as follows,

What if it wasn't a dream is about childhood wishes and dreams. What if cookies could grow in your garden or bullies weren't mean but kind? What kind of a world do you think we would find if our dreams really did come true? What would be better our dreams or reality?

The book was also described as, "give children a perspective on what the world would be like if kids' dreams and wishes came true", by WIFR.
