Beautifully Written & Illustrated! by Nancee on 3/25/14
Rating

"Whatever You Grow Up to Be" is a beautiful book written in rhyme, a mother talking to her son from the time of his birth throughout his growing seasons, ultimately concluding as her son becomes a father. The poetry begins with the mother's joy from the moment her son is born, and proceeds through the milestones of her son's life, and her love and support at every stage. As she tells him about those milestones she encourages and cheers her son forward, and shows acceptance for whatever her son decides to be, explaining that God has plans for him. Each segment throughout the book contains a well-chosen scriptural reading appropriate to the sentiments involved, enhancing the spiritual aspects of this wonderful book.

The is an over-sized hardcover book that is beautifully written and illustrated! Not only that, it is spiritually enriching and encouraging. Although poignant, as time passes by so swiftly through "the son's" life, the reading is positive and superbly written. As I read through this book I felt strong emotions at every stage of the boy's life, and the support and encouragement that is revealed as "the mother" talks to her child. I will be giving this book to my daughter who is expecting twin boys in a couple of months. This is a book that should be in the libraries of all mothers of sons!
