When I Grow Up by Rae Ripple is an entertaining and inspirational picture book for young children. A young girl and her mother are on their way to the library. The girl thinks about a question her teacher asked her at school. To find the answer, she turns to her mother for help. Her mother suggests they explore the library, but before they step through the door, the girl notices someone welding a sculpture outside. The girl is surprised to see that the person welding is a woman, and excitedly asks her mother if she can become a welder too! Her mother smiles and the girl rushes inside the library to find the books that will help her achieve her new dream. Will the girl find anything useful and what do you want to be when you grow up? Have you given it any thought?
When I Grow Up was a joy to read. What I loved the most was the storyline and how it will show children that they can be anything they want, no matter who they are. It is important to teach children that such factors as gender, ethnicity, and so on, shouldn't hold you back from being who you want to be in life, especially when it comes to choosing a career as this can bring future happiness. The illustrations in this book will grab the attention of any young reader as the author uses a mix of drawings and real-life images. I loved every page of this book and wish Rae Ripple all the best for the future.
