Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" This series for younger readers urges them to "Dream Big!" when answering that frequently asked question. Four glamorous careers are chosen for consideration, focusing mainly on the fun parts, while leaving the more sober details for an afterword. Well, why not? Kids will enjoy romping through an exciting array of experiences, in this volume imagining themselves as astronauts dressed in orange suits, heading for outer space. Enjoying every moment, the spokesperson for this international space team (a girl with a spiky ponytail) imagines herself blasting off and undertaking space tasks like performing "cool science experiments," manipulating a robotic arm for the International Space Station, and taking an exhilarating walk outside the station. Amusing spreads show the young astronaut warming dried food in an oven, chasing errant spaghetti, and sleeping upside down "like a bat" against a wall. This lively space traveler with her round head and huge eyes knows she would "have a blast" in her adventure-filled job. Dream big! Each brightly-colored oversized volume includes a "How do you get to be . . ." page, a helpful glossary, and a list of several related books. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
