What will YOU be when you grow up? Leonid Gore's imaginative text and art offer an original response to a universal question.
"What will I be when I grow up?" asks a little boy. The world around him supplies inspiring answers: A raindrop grows up to be a fast-running river. A green shoot grows up to be a tall and mighty tree. A shadow grows up to be a gentle night full of dreams.
In the end, the boy's greatest inspiration comes from the simplest of sources: his father's love.

Leonid Gore was born in Minsk, in the former Soviet Union.

Leonid lives in New Jersey with his wife and daughter.From Booklist:
In this picture book about a young child’s dream of being older and bigger, a kid finds models of growing up in the natural world around him. The concept works beautifully, from the raindrop that becomes the fastest river running through the hills and the small green sprout that will be the tallest tree, to the caterpillar that will be transformed into a butterfly and the shadow that will be “the gentlest night full of dreams.” On each unframed double-page spread, the bright, clear acrylic paintings have a small cut-out window to the next page, and the book’s climax shows a holistic scene of connections between earth, sky, and water. As the boy draws with his crayons, he knows he will grow up to be like his dad, who swings him high and folds him into a loving embrace. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman
