From Emily Winfield Martin, author/illustrator of Dream Animals, comes a new  book that celebrates the dreams, acceptance, and love that parents have for their children . . . now and forever!
From brave and bold to creative and clever, the 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.

'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.
