DREAMS TO GROW ON is a wondrous tale of one little girl’s imaginative voyage of what she will be when she grows up. This stunning book explores all the career choices that this little girl could possibly fulfill-all while she plays with and cares for her doll and brother, and as she goes about a fun-filled creative day.

The beautifully life-like watercolor illustrations are perfect for this type of book. The illustrator, Matthew Archambault, captures the young girl in the present and in the future as she imagines what she wants to be. DREAMS TO GROW ON is an ideal book for Career Day at schools, at home, and at work, and it would make a splendid addition to any library. The magnificently detailed book, in rhyming text, is a perfect way of helping young girls feel confident in what they choose to do-it also teaches them that they can be anything they want to be.

Readers will enjoy this lovely book for children…let DREAMS TO GROWN ON fill your child with hope and wonderment.

As a mother and reviewer, I loved this book. My children loved this book. You will love this book!
