Overview

You think about it all the time; what do you want to be when you grow up? Some of you know what you want, but sometimes, for whatever reason we lose focus. This book can be your guide. You don't have to wait until you're older to start planning what you want to do. Why not start now? Your future is important, although it may seem far away. This book dares you to believe that "anything is possible." Testimonials "If you're the kind of kid that has a dream, this practical book will motivate you to chase it."-Dr. Kevin Stevens, School Psychologist "'Armando Rodriguez's, Anything's Possible!' allows young people to take ownership of their dreams and the future. The book serves as a role model for youngsters who may be at a critical point in their lives. It is a voice of reason and wisdom at a much needed time in today's society."-Dr. Aurelia L. Henriquez,Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education, Brentwood School District "This is a very inspirational book. It's an important guide for young readers to help them achieve their dreams. It's a must read for every young reader and it wouldn't hurt older readers, like myself, so that we can remember the importance of having a dream and following the steps towards achieving that dream."-Robinson Ortiz, NYC Public School Teacher, 18 Year Veteran "'Anything's Possible!: What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?', is a wonderful, kid friendly narrative nonfiction book. I can appreciate how this picture book carefully encourages and teaches children how to reach for the stars. Not only does the author motivate you to create your goals and dreams, but his personal advice and voice throughout the book makes you feel that anything is possible. This book is perfect for that young adult who needs support to start on their dreams early in life."-Karen Avila-Feliciano,5th Grade Teacher, Brentwood School District

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
It is difficult to say who the target audience of this small book is. The push to consider "your dream" and the strategies for reaching it seem more appropriate for tweens or teens, but the writing style and picture-book format seem much younger. There are brightly colored illustrations, including an outdated cover image of a young girl using a typewriter, that suggest different activities and careers. General advice is offered such as reading inspirational books, watching motivational movies, listening to encouraging songs, and heeding the advice of helpful adults, but the book would have benefitted greatly from offering some specific examples of such movies, books or songs. School/classroom libraries would better spend their money on good biographies of those who overcame obstacles or appealing nonfiction treatments of various careers. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.
