"Whatever You Grow Up to Be" by Karen Kingsbury - Book Review



About the book:
Whatever You Grow Up to Be, by New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury, brings the mother-son relationship into new light, as a young boy discovers the unlimited possibilities God has for his life, while never forgetting the special bond he shares with his mother. “Ten little toes right from the start Make footprints on your mommy’s heart!” The timeless journey of a mother and son is poignantly captured in the story of a boy’s growth from childhood to fatherhood. From birth to football games to college graduation, a mother reminds her son that life is filled with possibilities and that God has a plan for him---whatever he grows up to be!


My Review
I am a fan of Karen Kingsbury!   I reviewed her story, "Always Daddy's Princess" about a year ago and you can read that review HERE.  Karen Kingsbury has a way of writing to make you envision your son or daughter doing each and everything in the story.   As I read the story I become misty eyed and my heart strings are very emotional because as a mom we want to cherish each and every moment with our children.  

My son is still a little young to enjoy the book as much as my daughter enjoyed the "Daddy's Little Princess" story.  I know he will enjoy it when he gets older.  The pictures grabbed his attention very nice and he pointed to the football several times so I know he relates to that picture and as he gets older I know he will relate to more.  

One feature that I enjoy is the Bible verses that are included on each page that fit right in with the story!   They remind me how blessed I am to be a parent and the verses also help encourage mothers.  

This book was released in February so pick up your copy today from Zondervan

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
