Reviews form Around the World "My son is 5 and he loved it. After reading it we talked about all of the things he wanted to be when he grows up. One awesome thing I noticed in this book is how gender neutral it is. There are both boys and girls depicted in the book, but it is a boy having the tea party, a boy using the sewing machine, a girl on the tree swing, and a girl as a superhero. I love how the author didn't stick to awful stereotypes of boys being super heroes and girls being princesses. You will NOT be disappointed with this book. Highly recommend! - M.Brock, Amazon "The Wonderful Things You Will Be (2015) by Emily Winfield Martin is the rare picture book that truly has something for everyone. This thoughtful, quiet story imagines all of the things little ones (both babies and bigger kids) will grow up to be including creative and clever as well as brave and bold." - Emma, Goodreads
