From acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake comes a humorous picture book about the empowering possibilities of growing up and a child's imagination!

Akira has a problem: He is too small to open packages by himself. He still needs grown-ups to help him.

But one day, perhaps one day soon, he’ll be able to open so many things without anyone’s help—and not just packages. When that time comes, he’ll make amazing discoveries and maybe even save the day with his new skills. There is so much to look forward to!


With humor and wit, acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake explores a child’s feelings about growing up: the push and pull of relying on parents while striving to learn and do things by oneself. The youngest of readers will relate, while discovering the many ways that they can open up exciting new experiences at this very moment!


CELEBRATES THE PARENT-CHILD CONNECTION: Growing up means embracing so many exciting opportunities! Parents will appreciate the reassuring messages of love and support as they seek to open new doors for their children, just as kids learn to do so for themselves!

PROMOTES CURIOSITY AND CREATIVE THINKING: Laugh-out-loud and imaginative scenarios will inspire young readers to think about their own futures, dream up big ideas, and embrace the promise of tomorrow.

ENGAGING STORY: With a comic-like style, unique narrative approach, and fast pacing, kids will find humor and surprises on every page.

GO-TO READ-ALOUD: Smart, comedic pacing, imaginative scenarios, and a compelling voice will make this a favorite picture book.
