Emily Winfield Martin

The Wonderful Things You Will Be
  • The Wonderful Things You Will Be

  • "This is the first time / There's ever been you, / So I wonder what wonderful things / You will do."

    In this timeless poem about growing up, Emily Windfield Martin explores all the things you can choose to be, from brave and bold to creative and wise.

    Filled with beautiful, quirky illustrations and clever rhyme, grown-ups will love reading this book to their children at any age as they lovingly consider all the possibilities that lie ahead. Its enduring message of love and acceptance as children grow and change is both universal and poignant, and it one to share over and over again.

Emily Winfield Martin spent a lot of time as a child wondering what she would grow up to be. She turned out to be lots of things: a painter, stitcher, cat tamer, and author and illustrator of books like Dream Animals and Day Dreamers. Emily lives among the giant fir trees of Portland, Oregon, where she wonders what other things she will be. Visit her online at emilywinfieldmartin.com.
