Is there anything more exciting to children than imagining the opportunities that will come their way in life? Or the joys and wonders that await them around every corner? They are our enduring safeguards of hope, clear-eyed seers of the limitless possibilities of the future, and most importantly, believers that they can indeed do it all. Somehow, as we grow older, we often lose that quality, trapped in the limited thinking of logic and reason. And in this day and age, with children growing up faster than ever, maturing at a rate unheard of in recorded history, savoring that unbridled optimism is the greatest gift any child can receive-and every parent can give.

A simple, sweet, and imaginative tale full of hope and wonder, Tanya Ferguson's debut is a treasure trove of loving thoughts and heartening words that will open your child's mind to life's possibilities-and remind you to revel in their unbridled enthusiasm. From the small lessons in life such as learning to tie a shoe or going to the zoo to knowing that visiting the moon is a realistic wish, the possibilities and simple joys of life help young ones connect that all of these thoughts are one in the same-none more or less realistic than the other. And for parents? The added joy of spending time with their most important someone, eyeing in amazement the extraordinary illustrations and expanding dreams that fill the spaces in their child's imagination is the rarest of all gifts. And most important for both parent and child is the final refrain, a reminder for youngsters that everything is imminently within their reach and for parents to cherish each moment: Someday I'll sing you a tune, and between you and me, that someday will be soon.

Both a reminder to parents to treasure the youth of their children and an encouraging story that teaches young ones that their future is limitless, Ferguson's sweet poem and its wonderfully evocative accompanying images is the perfect bedtime companion. Rhythmic and soothing, it teaches to expand the imagination while taking delight in the simplest of victories. A must-have for parents interested in broadening their young one's view of the possibilities life holds, Someday Soon is the perfect lullaby for a fitful night of sweet dreams.
