My grandma used to read me a picture book. It was about ten years ago.
I believe it was a rather new book at that time. Kind of the same story line as Alice in Wonderland, but less fantasy than that story. Thinking about it now, it didn't seem very appropriate for children. The toddler is sitting out on the lawn with her mother, and I think the sun makes her sick, or weak.
Then she either falls asleep, and dreams of this fantasy land, or it's even possible she dies, and it's a form of Heaven. It wasn't clear at the end of the book if she was still alive. The only detail I remember of the fantasy land is that she walked through a cave. The illustrations were very realistic, nothing like the flashiness and bright colors of Alice in Wonderland.
