When you grow up do you want to be adventurous? Maybe generous? How about confident? Or fair? In brightly colored collage illustrations filled with imaginative detail, artist Charise Mericle Harper celebrates some of the qualities most admired in people of all ages. A perfect gift, as well as a useful discussion starter on how we define ourselves and how we treat others, When I Grow Up gives readers a fresh perspective on an age-old question.
