There are so many things that we can be when we grow up. I think it is wonderful to provide a book that explores so many options available for children to think about and be inspired by!
Dream It & Do It: 100 Possibilities, Stories and Real-Life Role Models is a children’s book that provides information on different people and careers that can be inspirational for young readers. The stories are broken up into segments making it easy to jump around in the book and pick something a child wants to read about, or start from the front and work your way through.
I really liked the diversity in this book, both from a cultural and background perspective, as well as from a career choice! I think it provides a wide range of ideas for children to be inspired by.
This book has images, but I would not consider this a picture book. It is something that could be read to young children, but I think it is perfect for a middle elementary to middle-grade reader.
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Dream It & Do It for children that enjoy hearing about inspirational people!

Pub Date: November 12, 2020
Sharp spent the bulk of her career in new product development—dreaming up intuitive ideas from how to kill bugs to new ice cream forms to hit grocery shelves. A self-proclaimed problem-solver, she loves to think about the things that the world needs and figuring out how to make those things come to life. “Knowing in high school what I wanted to do with my life set me up for the right path. I wanted the same for my child and searched for books to guide her, but came up short,” Sharp said. “That’s when I thought, ‘why not write the book for my child that she needs and that will also help others?”
