This colourful board book goes through an alphabet of work options available for girls when they grow up. I loved the diversity in this book, in the jobs explored and the girls pictured. There were jobs that are considered both male and female traditional jobs. Not only that, but the girls pictured were very diverse, showing not only various nationalities, but also there is even one in a wheelchair. As one would expect, this book goes through the alphabet, choosing one profession for each letter, something girls can aspire to be. Luckily there’s enough description and artwork to show what each job entails, otherwise it would be really hard for a parent to explain. My only question is that this is a board book, yet my two year old toddler, who loves boardbooks, was not interested in this at all. It seems to be geared to older girls, perhaps once they are in kindergarten or primary grades. This is a book that young girls could pour over and then ask a lot of questions about the various occupations. The publisher, Walter Foster Jr, generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
This is a colorful and informative book about different careers a young woman can become. Geared to children it tells them by the alphabet that they can be anything they want to be. I found N and Q very creative I never would have thought of those. It also gives a brief description of what the job is. I found the message in this book good for children as they can grow up to be whatever they want. I highly recommend this book for ages 4+. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
This colourful board book goes through an alphabet of work options available for girls when they grow up. I really appreciated the diversity in this book, in the jobs explored and the girls pictured. The jobs traverse traditional male and female jobs, from pilots and teachers to yoga instructors and quantum physicists. Because girls from around the world are represented, young girls looking through this book should be able to identify personally with at least one girl. There are girls with blonde hair, red hair and dark hair. One girl is wearing a hijab. Another is in a wheelchair. Girls are wearing dresses, skirts, pants and uniforms. I would have liked P to be for president but the end of the book does specify that the jobs mentioned are only some of the options so I’d be adding that one if I read this to a young girl. “O is for Optometrist. She checks our eyes to make sure we see clearly.” Because this is a board book I had hoped it would be told in rhyme and was disappointed that it wasn’t. It was written in a down to earth way that makes the different jobs easy to understand but I found it a bit too matter of fact. This is the type of book I expect people would buy for a baby shower but I couldn’t imagine myself wanting to read it over and over. Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Walter Foster Jr. for granting my wish to read this book.
