A celebration of a growing child's accomplishments - and a reassurance that Mum will always be there.Children love the idea of growing up and doing things on their own. It's fun to dress, read and have showers like a big kid. But it's a little scary, too. Scampering along a stone wall just out of reach, a young boy asks his mother, Will you still take care of me when I'm big? An honest, touching, warm-hearted portrait of a loving relationship and a child taking those first steps toward independence.
