So Many Doors: Who Will You Be? by Alison McGhee

So many doors in all your days,
So much to wonder about.
Who will you be
And where will you go?
And how will you know?

Most parents and grandparents have looked at a little one's feet and wondered how many and where all their steps will lead down the years, Alison McGhee's So Many Days, expresses the worry, wonder, and hopes for a child's discovery of the world.

You are a star
Trailing fire at night.
You are a bird
Urgent for flight.

Soft illustrations of children in exploratory play extend the soft blank verse of McGhee's newest little inspirational book for sharing between parent and child.
