Book Review: The Wonderful Things You Will Be, by Emily Winfield Martin

By Anne Angstadt

What did you want to be when you grew up? My two and half year old loves the whimsical pictures in The Wonderful Things You Will Be, but he may not get the message yet. This charming book attempts to capture the indescribable joy that parents feel when they look at their newborn child and imagine all the great things he or she will do during his or her life. This uplifting book motivates kids to be anything they can imagine and encourages parents to support those dreams no matter what they are.

And I’ll love you,

Whoever you’ve grown up to be.

The Wonderful Things You Will Be helps us to take a step back and remember the thrill of childhood when anything was possible. Children and parents will smile as they read its pages. It tells children that they can be musicians, artists, gardeners, activists, writers, and more. You can find this inspirational story on eRead Kids as an eBook.

Borrow this enchanting book tonight and let your imagination run wild. The sky is the limit! Even if your child doesn’t completely understand the message, they will still love the illustrations.
