Inspire children to dream not just about a future career, but also about the kind of person they want to become with this empowering picture book from Emmy Award–winning journalist, best-selling author, founder of CARRY Media, and mother of three, Paula Faris.

Career Day is looming, and Lina has no idea what she wants to do when she grows up. Should she become a nurse? An engineer? A journalist? A professional athlete? There are too many options! When her mom suggests she ask herself a few key questions, Lina begins to realize who she grows up to be is more important than what she ends up doing. 

In a world that places so much emphasis on what we do, Paula Faris—who stepped out of her own role as an award-winning journalist—is passionate about encouraging kids to consider instead who they want to be. In this beautifully illustrated book, Paula shares this empowering message with young readers and gives parents tools to foster their child’s unique gifts and interests and focus them on the things that matter.

Join Lina on her journey as she discovers that character counts and who you are is more important than what you do.
