In this beautiful picture book a young rabbit and his pet kitten explore what tomorrow might bring and how they will face it together. They will be brave, curious, and smart. Each page features a different attribute that youngsters dream of becoming. These large words are surrounded by additional words in smaller text and pictures that provide more detail about how these attributes might be displayed and developed. As the rabbit and his kitten settle into bed they are glad to know that whatever happens tomorrow they will face it together.

A dreamy book with simple text and illustrations that make it especially suitable for very young children. The beauty of the book and cadence of the words make this an ideal bedtime story as the words and pictures weave together in a way that is relaxing and soothing. The illustrated large text that spell out the attributes that little bunny wishes to be reflects each trait with accuracy and flair. There are many things on each page that could begin a nightly discussion on how the images reflect the particular word and whether or not a child has had a similar experience in his/her own day. This is a beautiful book that children and adults will enjoy together and that will create lasting memories.
