When I Grow Up I Want To Be...a Good Person! by Wigu Publishing

Blake and Brendan would do almost anything to get out of going to Mr. Becket's funeral. It will be boring and sad-and dead people are scary! There might even be ghosts! But Mom and Dad insist. Mr. Becket was a good person, and it is right to gather with his family and friends to remember him and all the good things he did. So what's so good about remembering a dead person? A lot. Readers learn with Blake and Brendan what it means to be a good person and all the ways a good person makes a difference in people's lives, even long after they're gone.

For those of you who have not yet leapt aboard the Wigu Publishing train where the series of “When I Grow Up” is concerned, then you need to hop on right now! Wigu Publishing has put out some amazing titles that should be a staple of family reading time, as well as be included in school rooms as quickly as possible. Why, you ask? Because the books not only delve into various careers that children would love to set as their future goals – from nursing to firefighting to veterinarian, and more – but they also offer fantastic stories to show exactly what a career in any and all of these would be like. This time, however, Wigu has gone a step further and really touched on a great (and very rare) subject. Being a good person.../that is one goal we all share – children and adults. A goal we all strive to succeed at no matter what career it is we eventually choose. In this tale, brothers Blake and Brendan have to attend a funeral. Suffice to say, they don’t wish to go. But Mr. Becket, passing at the age of 88, was known as being one of the kindest, most generous men in the whole town, and everyone cared for him a great deal. And even though one of the boys is a bit afraid of ghosts, they do what their parents say and put on their best suits. The boys run into many people who are already old friends in this tale, from the firefighter to the nurse to the local grocer in town, as well as a man who doesn’t want to attend because he has a hard time saying goodbye to an old friend. The boys learn a great deal from the members of the town in regards to living a good life and how to be the type of individual that others will look up to. This, as with all the rest in this series, was a truly enjoyable read. The characters are varied and one and all always have intelligent things to say. But in this day and age, with all the problems and issues that are faced by our younger generations, it was truly a breath of fresh air to talk about the one thing we all want our children to end up as; good people. Not to mention, what we want to be as parents; good examples. Quill says: I have yet to come across a better series for both kids and adults. This is a true celebration of life and a “5-Star” read!
