When I Am Big
When I Am Big When I Am Big
$ 18.00

Charming illustrations and text encourage young children to explore what they might do as they grow up. The adventurous child imagines "I will tie my shoes all by myself, make 3 knots with big bows"; to eat twenty pizzas in one sitting, or walk animals, eight at a time, while teaching them tricks. When I Am Big is an unconventional counting book, as it goes all the way to twenty-five. The result is a book that nourishes a child's curiosity, confidence, humor and delight in the world's wonders.
