American Library Association Batchelder Honor Book (2024) STARRED Review: “Compelling artwork…stunning….Deftly captures a child’s sense of wonder at the vastness of the world.”— Kirkus Reviews "Whimsical illustrations...[a] springboard for imaginative flights."— Booklist "Gorgeous." — Foreword Reviews A playful, humorous look at being small but dreaming big. As a child and her mother walk up to the swimming pool, she dreams about everything she’ll do when she’s older. Maybe she’ll dance with jellyfish. Maybe she’ll fly to Saturn in a space rocket. She could even play with the monster under her bed! But for now, she’ll have to face that terrifyingly tall diving board… With alliterative language and explosively colorful illustrations, When I’m Big is an amusing journey through all sorts of fantastical futures. As readers travel to tropical rainforests, the North Pole, and beyond, they will start to dream about what their tomorrows could bring.
