Review

There is a myriad of delightful and unconventional jobs that a young boy must choose from when he tries to decide what he will be. The list is written in a simple rhyme with the rich illustrations filling in the details of each “job”. Will he be a puddle stomper, snowball smoother, or honeysuckle smeller? Finally, he decides to be all of them! Each of the “jobs” the young boy explores is positive and celebrates some of the happiest little moments in life. Because of the broad theme, this story can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Young children, through grades five, are its target audience, but even college graduates searching for a life career will find humor and fun in this lighthearted story. The detailed, color-filled illustrations add a level of depth that make this book a treasure. Highly Recommended. Kaitlin Start, Centennial Library Intern.
