I like the idea of this series. I know a lot of kids who have no idea what they’d like to be when they grow up. A series like this could help kids know a little more about certain professions and see if they may be interested in doing a job like the one described in the book. In “When I Grow Up I Want to be… a Teacher! – Carlee Learns a Surprising Lesson!”, Carlee is certain she doesn’t want to be a teacher because her mom is, but throughout the story, she thinks about all kinds of things she can be when she grows up… just not a teacher. Carlee realizes she learns a lot of cool things from her teachers and her friends tell her they really like her mom as a teacher. Carlee thinks it may be a good idea to be a teacher. I think the story in this book is more of Carlee being convinced being a teacher is okay not as much of what a teacher does in their job. The book has a bunch of fact boxes about all the different jobs Carlee daydreams about – lawyer, scientist, leader… The illustrations are a mix of real-life pictures/photos and cartoon illustration. I liked the real-life illustrations mixed into the cartoon ones – it was a neat effect. I thought the cartoon illustrations were okay and went with the story well. I think the book is a great introduction to lots of different jobs there are in the world and a good reminder of the ton of stuff that we learn from our teachers! *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE.....A TEACHER!: Carlee Learns a Surprising Lesson! by Wigu Publishing is a wonderful Children's Book/Careers. #2 in the "When I Grow Up I Want To Be....." series, and of course is a stand alone. See, "When I Grow Up I Want To Be.....in the U.S. Army!: Jake Learns a about the U.S. Army. I absolutely love this series for ages 6-up! What an exciting way for youngsters to learn about teachers, peer pressure, history, science and the the decision making. A fun, educational, informative yet entertaining tale, which is filled with creative illustrations. I would highly recommend this series, as well as this title to educators, parents, grand-parents, librarians, and young readers. Anyone who enjoys entertaining, informative, and exciting reads! A must read! Well done again! Received for an honest review from the publisher. RATING: 5 HEAT RATING: NONE REVIEWED BY: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

I enjoyed the creative way this book will encourage kids to explore some great career possibilities.  Carlee's concern over her mother, as a new teacher at her school, is cleverly dismissed as we discover that "the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree".  Spot on photography used as backgrounds add a nice dimension to the illustrated characters. Historical facts round out what I think will be a fun series for youngsters to examine some of the most noblest of professions.
