About this title
Do we ever really grow up? What does it mean to be a grown-up? Who really learns more in the parent-child relationship? When I Grow Up is the poignant story of a mother who watches her daughter grow, realizing just how much she learns, loves and continues to grow as a result of learning from her child. While adults may be “grown up”, they never really finish growing, as the mother tells her daughter over and over through the years. “You’re exactly who I want to be when I grow up”, is the phrase the little girl hears from her mother through her formative years. Through the years, she giggles at her mother’s ‘silly phrase’ reminding her mother, “You are grown up!” At the age of eight, she finally asks her mother why she always says this and why she doesn’t understand that she is already a grown-up. It’s then that she realizes that her perception of a grown up is far different than her mothers, as she discovers all of the many things that her mother has learned from her.When I Grow Up is a book that children, mothers, parents, grandparents and first-time parents will all enjoy. Any one who touches the life of a child will be surprised or relate to just how much their own life is touched by that child so deeply. A powerful message about the wonders of childhood and growing up is delivered in this treasured book. When I Grow Up is truly a book to be passed from generation to generation or to anyone who loves a child and relishes the child within themselves.About the Author:
