Whatever You Grow Up To Be by Karen Kingsbury & Illustrated By Valeria Docampo


Book Description 
I review for BookLook BloggersFrom New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury, a new children’s book about a very special mother-son relationship. In this beautifully illustrated picture book, #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury explores with heartwarming clarity the special bond between a mother and her son. From birth to football games to college graduation, the mother reminds her maturing child of God’s promises for him—whatever he grows up to be. A companion piece to Kingsbury’s Always Daddy’s Princess, a picture book about one father’s love for his daughter as she matures from baby to parent herself, Whatever You Grow Up to Be will remind young boys and their moms of all the blessings they share. Told in playful and emotive verse—with a whisper of Scripture enriching every page—children and parents will find fun and encouragement in the supportive guidance of God’s word. Perfect for gift giving and special occasions, this book can serve as a treasured keepsake as well as a compelling reminder of the influence a loving mother can have in the life of her son.

 The 411 by Maria and Goddess: 

We have an hour to kill every school morning and do try to get some reading done. This book definitely was adorable and my problem reader had no problem reading it on her own.

It was difficult for her to get to the next page due to the wonderfully, colored pages. We both that the illustrations were great!

Honestly the story is very, very sweet and I found myself tearing up as she read the book to me. As parents we watch our little ones grow right before our eyes. I am amazed everyday and this book puts all that into words and shows just how fast time flies.

Like us, the mom in this story watches her little guy grow right before her eyes from baby to adult and a daddy.

LOVED THIS. Very sweet book.
