I Gotta Tell Grandpa
A Story and Workbook about Finding and Being Yourself
About the Book
When Sam’s teacher, Ms. Howell, asks him if he will ever grow up, he begins to wonder: Will he grow up? And if he does, what will he be? He really doesn’t know just yet, and that’s scary.
In this children’s book, one little boy considers all the things he could be when he grows up and gets to know who he is, taking a journey to his real self.
A beautifully written and illustrated book and a Quality Children’s Book Award Winner.
