Do you ever look at your children, and wonder what they will grow up to be? Emily Winfield Martin voices the thoughts of parents everywhere in her #1 New York Times Bestseller. Martin has written in poetic, simple, and beautiful singsong cadence the adorable new picture book for smaller children, The Wonderful Things You Will Do.
With beautiful illustrations and several gate-fold pages, there are costumed children and loving parents.The book ends with, “This is the first time there’s ever been you, so I wonder what wonderful things you will do”.
The knowledge that parents believe in them helps children build self-confidence — an important tool for all of us. The self-confident child has less self-doubts at attempting new or scary things like math or facing a bully.
Parents and grandparents alike will enjoy reading it to their little ones, and seeing their eyes light up as the story unfolds. This is the perfect gift for new parents, a child’s birthday, or maybe even kindergarten graduation.
