The world is full of great things to be and do! Meet Aliki, Belinda, Chris, and 23 more girls who are imagining what they will be when they grow up—from astronaut to zookeeper.
What would you like to be when you grow up? An astronaut? A ballet dancer, a computer whiz? The world is full of great things to do. But like Aliki, Belinda, Chris, and the other girls in this book, you have to have a dream. Eve Bunting’s breezy, rhyming text, with lively illustrations by Suzanne Bloom, invites girls to “dream any dream you want to dream.”
