"When you were too small To tell me hello, I knew you were someone I wanted to know. "For all of your tininess Couldn't disguise A heart so enormous . . . And wild . . . And wise." The Wonderful Things You Will Be (2015) by Emily Winfield Martin is the rare picture book that truly has something for everyone. This thoughtful, quiet story imagines all of the things little ones (both babies and bigger kids) will grow up to be including creative and clever as well as brave and bold. Martin's rhyming text moves the narrative along with lyrical narration reminiscent of a poem or a lullaby. Although this book is an obvious choice for parents to read with their children, it can also work just as well in a story time program. The text is just a tad too long for a baby story time but I could see toddlers or school age children being drawn in by the bright colors and rhymes. This picture book also add just the right touch of whimsy with subtle touches including children dressed as animals and other fantastical aspirations. Each page has ample white space for text combined with bright, colorful illustrations. The Wonderful Things You Will Be includes children from a variety of backgrounds as well as boys and girls. It also thoughtfully circumvents many gendered or cultural stereotypes to create sensitive depictions of each child. The Wonderful Things You Will Be is a subtle, charming picture book sure to appeal to readers of all ages. A joy to read.

This sweet children's book is so fantastic. Every child, mother, grandmother and person, needs a copy of this book. This is definitely one that I will buy for my collection. This is such a sweet story about just how important each and every child is. No matter what life brings you to be who you are and enjoy who you are. Such a loving, and compelling story. This might go up as one of my all time favorite Children's books. So, so sweet. I cannot wait until I have grand kids to read this to over and over.
