For ages 3-9. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE? is a timeless children’s picture book that encourages children to consider their future hopes and dreams. As students enter the classroom on the first day of school, the teacher, Mrs. McGee, poses an important question: What Do You Want To Be? Students excitedly (and sometimes shyly) shout out their career aspirations from dancer to fireman to astronaut. Many other delightful occupations are mentioned in verse. At the end of the day, Mrs. McGee emphasizes why learning is so important.

“…[My daughter] had so much excitement for the book that my 8 year old son read it the next morning at the breakfast table before school. He also enjoyed it. AND, if that’s not enough praise for this wonderful children’s book, my housemate (a future elementary school teacher) read it. She loved it too…”~S.J. McMillan
“With the use of the book, it makes learning about job/occupations fun. (I plan to use it when I baby sit.) Ms. Carter did an excellent job of giving each character in the book a specific personality…I love her subtle use of rhyme.”~Linda Joyce
“As your child reads, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE?, who will they identify with? How many times will they change their choices and how many different ones will they come up with on their own?…”~Janet K. Gallagher
