What Will You Be?

Written by Yamile Saied Méndez, Illustrated by Kate Alizadeh

After her friends ask a little girl what she will be when she grows up, she goes home and asks her abuela. Her abuela tells her to listen to her heart. When she stops and listens, “the answers come fast in a rush of colors and sounds.” As she tells all the things that she could be, she knows that what ever she does, she will be herself.A fun and colorful story that would be great to read to a class when someone has asked this same question. With the usual answers the students will give, this will let the kids know that anything is possible, and they can stay true to themselves.
