A mother rejoices in her new baby son and wonders, at each stage of his childhood, what God has in store. Prince? Fireman? Football player? Musician? Whatever You Grow Up to Be by renowned Christian author Karen Kingsbury is a picture book about trusting in God's plan.Told in gentle rhyming verse and punctuated by scripture, Whatever You Grow Up to Be captures the wonder and faith of parents as they watch their child grow into manhood. The message in the uplifting narrative is reassuringly simple: that God has a path for our lives. Cheerful kid-appealing illustrations by Valeria Docampo show a baby boy passing through familiar milestones on his way to becoming a father himself. Footprints used in many of the scenes cleverly evoke an ongoing journey.Whatever You Grow Up to Be would make a calming bedtime read-aloud or a sweet gift for new parents. Biblical quotes are taken from the New International Version.Nina Ditmar, CLJ
