Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-At the end of a busy day of playing with his friends, Sebastian the turtle snuggles close to his father and muses on what he would like to be when he grows up. Exciting careers as a fireman, a pirate, or a deep-sea or sky diver run through his mind, but when his dad tells him that he had always wanted to be a father of a son just like Sebastian, the little turtle concedes that he would like to grow up to be just like his father. Cloyingly sweet illustrations are in keeping with the slight, overly sentimental story.

My son Fabian loves this book, and so do I. It 's a sweet story with funny scenes about Sebastian, the little turtle, and his wishes for occupations. Then, at the end of the day, when Father turtle and his son cuddle with each other, it's a peaceful moment of loving and caring for each other. When I read the book to him, my son becomes quiet and sleepy himself. I can only recommend this book to everyone to share it with their little kids.

Format: Hardcover
As a kindergarten teacher I've already used this lovely book as the basis for working with children. The 3- to 6-year-olds love looking at the illustrations and having the story read out to them. We talked about their parents' jobs and their own dream jobs. We also talked about the kids' favorite pets. Then the children drew pictures based on that. We even organised a little exhibition of those drawings in our kindergarten. "When I Grow Up ..." is a really nice book!

Format: Hardcover
This story really touched us to the bottom of our hearts. It expresses exactly our emotions about being mother and father. Reading the book out to our two kids, we felt so close to them. In an artistically simple way, this book tells what parental love really means. The scene of Father turtle telling his son that his greatest wish has always been to become a father is so sweet and tender, it brings tears to our eyes every time we read it. A simply beautiful book!
