A whimsically illustrated counting book that nourishes a child's curiosity, confidence, and delight in the world through numbers.

What will you do when you are big? How many scoops of ice cream will you eat? How many puddles will you jump over? And what time will you go to bed?

Charming illustrations accompanying the text in When I Am Big to encourage young children to explore and quantify all the fun and adventurous things they can do as they grow up. Through first-person narration, readers will follow along to declare things like " I will tie my shoes all by myself, and make 3 knots with big bows.", "I will jump over 9 puddles, all of them at once!", or "I will build a roller coaster that has 17 cars."
