A star-scattered night, a brand new baby, and all the potential in the world... This is a poetic introduction to what it means to be raised as a boy in the challenging times we live in, and all of the dazzling possibilities that await him. A beautiful and poignant message is at the heart of this book: whatever is expected of you, you can be whoever you want to be. With gold foil detail on the cover, this is a truly stunning gift for children and parents at any key life moment, from birth to graduation.
