I Can Be Anything by Jerry Spinelli

It's one of the most frequently asked questions of children of all ages: what do you want to be when you grow up? This little boy has lots of possibilities: he could be, for instance, "a puddle stomper, apple chomper, mixing-bowl licker, tin-can kicker". This book is like a love letter to possibilities, the idea that you can be anything you want to be. The exuberance bounds off the page along with the little boy and his rabbit friend. The rhymes and illustrations make it a natural choice to share with children, but, as the cover points out, it's also good for children-at-heart who might be poised on the cusp of their own future.

Find it at IndieBound.
