A little boy shares with his mum his dreams of what he might be when he grows up in this tender picture book from the host of The Talk and Big Brother, Julie Chen, and New York Times bestselling artist and Caldecott Honor recipient Diane Goode.
One night while getting ready for bed a little boy starts to wonder what life will be like when he grows up. He could be a painter, a musician, a mountain climber, a mayor…
He tells his mother all about his big ideas…and all of the other things he wants to do. But when will he grow up? And why does it take so long?
