"I WANT TO BE A MOMMY," written and illustrated by Judy Cooley, Shadow Mountain, $17.99 (ages 3 and up)

In this picture book, a little girl wonders what she wants to be when she grows up as her mother tells her she could be anything.

A princess? An explorer? A doctor? A movie star? The president?

As she explores, she looks at the bright side of each occupation she picks but looks for something more until she sees what she can be and how to do all of those things she's daydreamed about.

Judy Cooley's bright watercolor illustrations add to this delightful book.
