A fun story about what all sorts of baby animals will do when they grow up, from little lions who will roar loudly to little elephants who will someday be able to spray with everything with their trunks.

Children will enjoy lifting the flaps to see what the baby animals will do when they're older. It may also lead to a fun guessing game to try to see what the grown up animals will do. This is a great example of a picture book for those younger ones who are just leaving the board books.

This is an adorable animal book for toddlers. The illustrations are very colorful and cheery. This book could be used by teachers to spark converstations by asking questions such as "what do you want to be when you grow up?" This book can also spark a child's imagination by thinking about what their future will be like. ...more

So this is a great book to read to a child that is always trying to grow up too fast or feels like they are too small.
