A little boy shares with his mom 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 will life 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?--from the publisher

“A small child muses about the future as Mom guides the bedtime routine…Funny artwork extends the narrative with a subplot in which Mom struggles to get her child’s clothes off, hair brushed, etc. Young children will love the repetition of ‘Will I be…?’…Winning text and illustrations for bedtime.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
