Whatever You Grow up to Be




Author: Karen Kingsbury  and
 Illustrations: Valeria Docampo

From 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.

I have read Karen Kingsbury books for years and when I saw this book as a choice, I had to read it.  I love picture books and when this book arrived, I saw immediately that the pictures were bright and large to catch the eye.  Then I set down to read it and was drawn to the story of the mom and her son.  Being the mom to three boys I could easily relate to the story.  It was a sweet story of a mother and son’s love and the circle of life.  As a mom and grandmother, I could easily relate to the story and it was precious.  Karen Kingsbury once again did not disappoint.  She is a master story teller and always tells a wonderful story.  Although I do not recommend this book for a toddler, my granddaughter did let me read it to her. The pictures are perfect for her, but the storyline is for an older child.   This book is perfect for gift giving and special occasions, and 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.
