When I Grown Up by Jason Bardwell is a book where the character questions himself on what he wants to be when he grows up. After reading this book, I questioned myself on what I wanted to be. Still being a kid I have not made up my mind, but there are many opportunities and careers out there to choose from. And just like the character in the book, I am indecisive on what I want to be when I grow up. But given the options the author has written about, I think that being an airplane pilot with be the most fun!
In the book he imagines everything possible, from him being an astronaut flying around in space all the way to being a race car driver driving fast. Filled with wonderful illustrations ( all done by the author: Jason Bardwell ) and a funny poster in the eye-doctor illustration, this book is great for kids. Just like Jason’s other book Beware of the Teacher, this book has a good flow. Cars with Mars and “Up in the Air” with “Down There!” this book rhymes after every line to add some humor to the book.
Asking the question of what would you like to be when you grow up, the book leaves the reader thinking and dreaming. Even though you may not be exactly sure on your dreams or future, the book reminds the readers that you will always be you and nothing can change that!
Always be yourself.
