The Wonderful Things You Will Be
About this deal
Her children are so serious… and so unflappable… that they convey not just hope for the future, but a sense of manifest destiny.”— Publishers Weeklystarred review
From brave and bold to creative and clever, Emily Winfield Martin’s rhythmic rhyme expresses all the loving things that parents think of when they look at their children. Swim along with the pout-pout fish as he discovers that being glum and spreading "dreary wearies" isn't really his destiny. Emily is a unique girl, and all her works reflect her talents. In fact, her natural environment among high fir trees in Portland allows her to create lots of outstanding things in the fiction genre such as pictures, poems, and novels. That’s how The Wonderful Things You Will Be appeared.The Wonderful Things You Will Be is a subtle, charming picture book sure to appeal to readers of all ages. A joy to read. I read it as an adult interested in the craft of illustrating children’s books, but I got something rather precious from reading it myself. As I got to think about how parents raise their children and have all sorts of anticipations for their futures and caring for them to grow older and prosper, I thought of divine providence on the other hand. Though this idea is not presented at all in the book in any direct or indirect way, but I thought it’s nice to receive this sentiment from a children’s book. The Wonderful Things You Will Be has a loving and truthful message that will endure for lifetimes and makes a great gift to the ones you love for any occasion.

Definitely, all these things are inspiration for this talented person, whose products people adore and want to have.
It is arranged as a letter to the most important and beloved person in the world. And all of the lines are spotted with tiny and hidden reasons for love.Sweet but not saccharine and singsong but not forced, Martin's text is one that will invite rereadings as it affirms parental wishes for children while admirably keeping child readers at its heart." I love the way this book suggests possibilities of things to be and also states positive attributes (like kindness) that they know the child will display. It's a book that works on various levels and makes children think in a playful yet deep way.
