Publisher Description

"This is the first time There's ever been you, So I wonder what wonderful things You will do."

In this timeless poem about growing up, Emily Windfield Martin explores all the things you can choose to be, from brave and bold to creative and wise.

Filled with beautiful, quirky illustrations and clever read-aloud rhyme, grown-ups will love reading this book to their children at any age as they lovingly consider all the possibilities that lie ahead. Its enduring message of love and acceptance as children grow and change is both universal and poignant, and is one to share over and over again.

Author Biography

Emily Winfield Martin spent a lot of time as a child wondering what she would grow up to be. She turned out to be lots of things: a painter, stitcher, cat tamer, and author and illustrator of books like Dream Animals and Day Dreamers. Emily lives among the giant fir trees of Portland, Oregon, where she wonders what other things she will be. Visit her online at emilywinfieldmartin.com.

Review

Sweet but not saccharine and singsong but not forced, Martin's text is one that will invite rereadings as it affirms parental wishes for children while admirably keeping child readers at its heart. -- Kirkus Reviews Kirkus Reviews

11 Jan, 2021
Wonderful book which allows children to open their minds. Beautiful old school illustrations in a time of tech. The reason I gave it 4 and 5 stars is because if you are not a native speaker some of the sentences can be difficult to read as you go for example from “b” to “br” to “b” - not easy. I would still buy the book because it is aspirational.
