What do you want to be when you grow up? I know, I know, I’m grown up, but I still ask myself this question!!! I Can Be Anything is a book that asks this question. The delightful responses found here are from a child’s perspective. But honestly which adult wouldn't like to be a puddle stomper, gift unwrapper, bubble gum popper, mixing-bowl licker or paper-plane folder? The book is short and sweet, but very entertaining. The illustrations are great! They are colorful, bold, imaginative, and fun! Check this book out for a little laugh or for a reminder of what the future is like in the eyes of a child.
