When I grow up, what shall I be?

In this exuberant book, a little boy contemplates all the interesting and exciting things he could be when he grows up: everything from a paper plane folder to a puppy dog holder, from a baby sis soother to a snowball smoother.

Newbery-Award winning author Jerry Spinelli’s simple and charming rhymes are accompanied by internationally-renowned illustrator Jimmy Liao’s vibrant and fantastical illustrations. Now available in a board book format, this imaginative joyride about hopes and dreams, and all the things life has to offer will make for the perfect graduation gift.
