The New York Times bestseller that celebrates the dreams, acceptance, and love that parents have for their children . . . now and forever!
From brave and bold to creative and clever, Emily Winfield Martin's rhythmic rhyme expresses all the loving things that parents think of when they look at their children. With beautiful, and sometimes humorous, illustrations, and a clever gatefold with kids in costumes, this is a book grown-ups will love reading over and over to kids—both young and old. A great gift for any occasion, but a special stand-out for baby showers, birthdays, and graduation. The Wonderful Things You Will Be has a loving and truthful message that will endure for lifetimes.
We loved the lessons in this book and the lovely images of children of all different backgrounds. The story had a beautiful way of introducing my children to unique characteristics and talents they could have as they grow. It also sparked ideas about who they may become one day. We talked about different things they like now and how they could use their interests in ways to help others. We also discussed how each of my kids is unique and no one else is just like them. This book is beautifully written with a lovely way of inspiring the imagination. -Emily, mother of four (ages 5, 3-year-old twins and 1.5), California, MD
