From Yamile Saied Méndez, acclaimed author of Where Are You From?, comes a stunning lyrical picture book that tells the story of one girl who is always asked a simple question: What will you be when you grow up?

"Méndez and Alizadeh create a balance between the abstract and concrete by letting the child imagine the future but with Abuela's guidance and support. A sweet read to share with loved ones." --Kirkus (starred review)

"Turning a common question of childhood into a substantive quest, this imaginative set of plans will have other children charting their own course through the stars." --School Library Journal

What will you be when you grow up?

A young girl dreams about all the endless possibilities, sparking a sense of wonder, curiosity, and growth. With her abuela's loving guidance, she learns her potential is limitless.

Yamile Saied Méndez's powerful, lyrical text and Kate Alizadeh's colorful, stunning art are a radiant celebration of family, love, and community.

A Spanish-language edition, Qué Serás?, is also available.
