Jessica’s Review:

This is a 5 star children’s picture book that helps children learn their ABCs and also shows them that they can grow up to be anything they want! 

The illustrations are very colorful and bright and also showcase the diversity in people. This includes diversity in disability and religion which does show young children that anyone can become anything they want to be. They just have to reach for it and go! 

There is one letter per page which showcases an occupation with an illustration. There is also one sentence that explains the selected occupation. There are a variety of occupations showcased (some with bigger words that might need some explanation from mom or dad): Emergency Medical Technician, Paleontologist (is this an occupation that still exists???) to more advanced occupations as our technology continuously expands: Game Developer/ Quantitative Analyst, and Robotic Engineer).

This is an alphabet book I highly recommend for children.

I received a copy from the publisher via Amazon Vine to review.
