Someday, Maybe -- New Picture Book Full of Dreams


Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

What did you dream of when you were a child? I dreamed I would be an inventor and have a huge mansion with all sorts of inventions to not have to do the cleaning, chores, cooking, etc. Of course, I also told my parents I would have some crazy number of kids 10, 20, or more and they could come help me take care of them all. Dreaming is such an important part of childhood. Today I am sharing a fun new multicultural book that helps get kids' imagination flowing. The book is Someday, Maybe by Diana Murray and illustrated by Jessica Gibson. It is recommended for ages 4 to 8.

From the Publisher:

Someday, Maybe is an inventive and inspiring picture book that imagines the exciting jobs, discoveries, and innovations that children dream of for their futures.

With self-driving cars and commercial launches to space, the future has arrived! And so have the jobs of the future, from intergalactic rock bands with riffing robots to doctors with X-ray glasses.

Children have always dreamed of what they will grow up to become, and with Someday, Maybe the possibilities are whole lot more out of this world. Join a group of intrepid young innovators while they dream about where the future will take them in this imaginative picture book.

From Me:

This book is such a fun book. It is full of creative ideas that will get anyone's imagination flowing. I love how it is multicultural as well as inspiring. The illustrations portray childhood perfectly. From the drawings taped to walls to the creative things they want to do. Who doesn't want X-ray specs so you don't have to do the entire X-ray?

The children are boys and girls, abled and disabled as well as different races. Each has some fun ideas of what the future may look like as well as possible careers. This book is perfect to encourage a discussion about future dreams. Perhaps even as an introduction in class to write about what a child wants to be when he or she grows up. This book will get the juices flowing for creative answers.

There are so many great ideas and sparks of conversations built in. One child dreams of curing the common cold. And why do the kids want to do these amazing things? Why for hugs from their families and to make them proud. It is just a sweet and fun book. I hope you will check it out! Then perhaps think about what the future holds for you!
