The Wonderful Things You Will Be meets The Remember Balloons in this lyrical and gentle picture book about the joy and importance of making memories and cherishing life’s most special moments—a companion to Thankful.

To remember means to keep something in your mind.
To hold it safe in your memory, like a small, smooth egg in your hand.
How do you make a memory? And how do you remember?

This poignant story takes readers through the bittersweet celebration of the last day of school, the pause before blowing out birthday candles, the magical closeness of gathering around a campfire: those tiny moments that enrich life.
