What’s It All About
Riley loves his curious big cousin Joe! Joe’s inquisitive nature leads him to ask Young Riley a big and scary question, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” Unsure about it, Joe reminds him of the amazing accomplishments done by their own family members and this gets Riley excited. They journey down the family line like a photo album reliving each ones greatness! In these moments Riley realizes that there are an abundance of careers that would be perfect for him, but which will he choose? When he’s asked by his teacher about his big plans, Riley knows just what to say.
