by

I Want to Be a Cowboy (I Want to Be) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Full color, full-page photographs throughout with straightforward and engaging text, the 'I Want to Be...' series is an appealing and engaging introduction to a broad spectrum of occupations.

Synopsis:

The new I Want to Be series is sure to appeal to children and parents alike. With full-color photographs throughout and straightforward, engaging and informative text, they are a great value.

Every child has concepts and dreams about what they want to do when they grow up and adults all remember the black and white books that depicted the life of a veterinarian, policeman or other vocations. This new series is thoroughly modern and colorful. The firefighters, pilots and cow"boys" depicted are women and men. The aircraft and firefighting equipment are the most modern, from water-bombing helicopters to fighter planes to passenger-carrying jets. The days and nights of a cowboy are portrayed as the romantic but hard-working life that it is.

Children will enjoy learning about what mom, dad and other adults do at their jobs. And someday each child will want to choose a job of his or her dreams.

Synopsis:

The I Want to Be... series gives young children a realistic insight into the working day of adults. Easy-to-read captions and color photographs of women and men from different cultures help children understand what's involved in each occupation. Young readers learn to respect the importance of doing a job well and appreciate the contributions these workers make to our life and the world around us.

These books are perfect for reading alone or in group story times. They are certain to spark questions and encourage dialogue and prompt children to learn more about these occupations.
