I first bought this book for the Illustrations (which I might add are up there with Ezra Jack Keats and Van Allsburg). Then I read the book and really enjoyed it.
Someone mentioned that It gave the wrong Ideas to kids. The only ideas that I saw this book giving to kids is that it is good to be interested in things and to not be afraid to try new things until you find what you love to do.
I would really recommend this book to anyone.
This might be a bit tedious for adults, but this is a very important lesson for children to learn and to recognize that there are other options out there, just because you start learning music on a piano does not mean you can't try the trombone or if you work in pastels you can't work with watercolors.
This is a great read which is funny, fun, and silly, while still maintaining a serious message.
