A lovely book that I liked especially because it was a little larger than most which made it easy to hold up and 'share' with our little granddaughter. She was intrigued as the illustrations are good and so is the colour. Just a bit 'light-on' with the amount of text. Lots to talk about within the pictures though and a very positive book.

What will you grow up to be? Anybody that you'd like to be! A lovely picture book about the unconditional love that parents feel for their children...whoever and whatever they may become. Cute and colourful illustrations.

'The Wonderful Things You Will Be' is a darling, positive, reaffirming book about possibilities and dreams without expectations or agendas.

Quite beautifully done.

. . . And then I'll look at you
And you'll look at me
And I'll love you,
Whoever you've grown up to be.

I can't think of a better message for our children.

I love the book. It shows the unconditional love parents have towards their kids. Most parts rhyme beautifully. I recommend reading the paper copy of the picture book, rather than the ebook, because the ebook doesn't show the pages properly causing the texts don't connect and rhyme as well.

A book to make parents feel good. :D Good book for its potential effects on making parents act more loving towards their children. My 2.5yo didn't choose to read it a second time.
