About this title


At the end of a beautiful and busy day, Sebastian should be asleep. But he is still wide awake.

Snuggling down next to his father, Sebastian asks, ""Do you know what I want to be when I grow up?"" then eagerly regales his doting parent with all his ideas.

When sleep finally comes, father and son have forged a wonderful new bond based on mutual admiration and abiding love.

Here is a sweet, simple, and affirming book for fathers to share with their children at bedtime.
