In this book, we meet 6 main characters who demonstrate different careers, specifically in STEM.
A young child may not know about so many different career options. I liked the fact that children will also learn the alphabet and a new word beginning with each letter. I loved the easy flow of the book and that the font was easy to read. It had a nice size for small hands. It had a beautiful book cover and lovely and diverse illustrations. Both boys and girls were represented. Children who are Black, White, Asian, or Latino can also see themselves represented and we know representation matters. I recommend this book for children ages 5 to 8. There wasn’t anything I disliked about the book. I give this book 5 stars.
