DREAM IT & do it
“DREAM IT & do it: 100 Possibilities, Stories, Real-Life Role Models for Girls and Boys — Inspiring All The Things You Can Be” by Holly Sharp is a Children’s Non-Fiction book designed for ages 3-7, but older elementary will benefit from it as well. Personally, I see it as best for elementary and middle schoolers, but the earlier you talk about possible career choices it will help youth find the work they will enjoy. They can try out all the options out there for them. This book is helpful. It is beautifully designed with awesome illustrations. I understand why this is a reader favorite book. It is wonderful book. I would recommend it for families and schools. It is a nice way to introduce various careers to youth.
This is a quick read with a great format. There is an illustration of the subject and a page or page and a half about the person and career idea. It talks about 100 career ideas popular today. They will learn a little about such careers as writing, performing, business, nature, designing, service, discoverers such as physicists, and more. Well-known people in these careers including Dr. Suess, Danica Patrick, Bill Nye and Ruth Bader Ginsberg are featured. Then a little about the career and information about the featured person are mentioned. The element at each point for the career gives advice if the youth is interested or thinking about the career. There is usually an activity related to help them decide if it is a career they really will like it or not. This book is fun and beneficial to youth. They can enjoy activities that are fun while also taking part in something that will help them decide if a career is something they really will want to do.
