“When I grow up” is a very cute book for children that shows all the jobs options they will have when they grow up. It has beautiful illustrations and it’s the kind of book that you can read to your child and talk about what you see on each page, ask which jobs your child liked most and have fun seeing how their answers change each time you read the book.

It also has a nice message at the end, reminding children that even when there are so many options for their future, they need to focus on their present and have fun while growing up. An absolutely lovely book that every parent should add to their children’s shelves.
