Author Biography

There are two things in this world that I love doing the most: writing and reading children’s stories. My stories aim to entertain, uplift, and inspire.

Have You Ever Wondered What You Will Be? is my latest picture book. The idea for this book came to me one hot summer’s day. I had just finished working on two other books, and I was ready to write my next book. I had a few different themes in mind but none of them excited me as much as the title that suddenly popped into my head: Have You Ever Wondered What You Will Be?

You see, I always need a title before I start writing a story. Without a title, I feel like a ship without a rudder. Having a title I’m excited about pretty much unlocks the story from within, and the words simply start tumbling out. So, when the title came to me, I knew there was a story or a poem about dreams and possibilities lurking in there somewhere, waiting to be written.

I also knew I was going to write it for myself—for the starry-eyed kid I once was, gazing at the night sky, dreaming of becoming a writer of rhymes and a weaver of tales someday.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Visit juniawonders.com to discover my books.

Reviewed by Philip Van Heusen for Readers' Favorite

Children are a bundle of potential. As parents, it is crucial to help your children develop their potential to the maximum. Junia Wonders has authored Have You Ever Wondered What You Will Be? In this book, Junia shares many possibilities of careers for children to investigate. I love that Junia avoided the old stereotypes that girls could become nurses while boys could become doctors. The career field is wide open for girls and boys to become whatever they want to be. There is no gender stereotyping here. This book is wonderfully rhymed and encouraging. As a parent, read this book with your child and discuss various occupations available. Help your child explore any field they find interesting. Don’t try to force them into a mold you have designed for them.

In Have You Ever Wondered What You Will Be?, Junia Wonders encourages children. She knows that children play make-believe, trying out different roles. This book is designed to open a fantastic world of possibilities for children. The words of Junia are enhanced by the artistic ability of Chiara Nasi. One of the statements Junia makes that I absolutely love talks about the measure of life is not just the successes, but also how you handle failures. She does not deceive children into thinking that life is fair and rainbows are constantly in the sky. She shares that hard times will come, but one must never give up. Junia should be applauded for her brilliant presentation of the future for children. I highly recommend this book and its message for children. Help your child keep their dreams alive!
