When I Was Fiveby Arthur Howard
Synopses & Reviews
When Jeremy was five he wanted to be an astronaut or a cowboy--or both. And he had a best friend named Mark. But now he's six and wants to be a major-league baseball player or a deep-sea diver. Jeremy knows things change as you grow up, but some things just might stay the same--like your best friend. "Teachers looking for stories on friends to read to kindergarten and first-grade classes will request this picture book year after year."--Booklist
The joy of growing up is captured in this kid-friendly picture book that is a "must for kids passing the threshold from totdom to real childhood" ("Copley News Service"). Watercolor illustrations.
