Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story with the author herself! Donna Gephart reads Go Be Wonderful, a picture book about the unconditional love we have for our little ones—at every age and stage.



When Daisy is born, Daddy says she’s wonderful for crying, sleeping, and playing peek-a-boo. When she’s one, Mommy says she’s wonderful for banging on pots and pans in a “rock ’n’ roll band.”

Grandma and Grandpa say she’s wonderful for saying, “Nooooooooo,” when she’s two. Her uncles for taking a mud bath when she’s three, and her neighbor for riding her scooter all the way to the library when she’s four.

Then comes the biggest milestone of all. School! It takes a village to get her there—as parents, grandparents, uncles, and neighbors escort Daisy to the door. But will Daisy be wonderful at school? Yes! She shares, makes a friend, and reaches the toilet just in time!

“I was wonderful!” Daisy shouts.

Bright colors and joyful compositions filled with humorous details depict Daisy’s community of adoring family and friends.

Perfect for children entering preschool or kindergarten, for preschool graduation, or as a WONDERFUL baby shower gift. The jacket has a growth chart attached so you can measure your own child’s wonderfulness.
