Book Description (formally called "Annotation"): Two parents sing to their first child, imagining all the amazing things he will do. Inspired, they all race out the door to get started! A fun, positive book with 20 joyous illustrations. Ages 1-10. Following the story, additional space is provided for children to plan their own dreams, and keep track of their accomplishments and experiences. A keepsake to be reflected upon and cherished. “[Glavin’s] story inspires children to reach for the stars.”––NAPERVILLE SUN “[Grepo] has created pictures rich in detail and optimism and which celebrate the diversity of our world. . . . Kids are also urged to brainstorm about their future by envisioning dream vacations, creating a savings plan and writing their perfect life story. . . . the book will make a keepsake people will enjoy looking back on when they’re older.”––CLAREMONT COURIER “In this combination picture–activity book and memory album, parents affectionately envision the firsts in their new child’s life . . . à la an energetic reversal of "Goodnight Moon". . . . Space provided after the story’s enthusiastic conclusion invites parents and children to record and remember firsts, and to celebrate and plan future goals. . . . it sticks close to home, with a heartfelt message: Mom and Dad are here, and they can’t wait to see you grow.”––KIRKUS REVIEWS
