Riley is spending time with his older cousin Joe. Joe asks lots of questions. When Joe asks Riley what he wants to be when he grows up, Riley can't decide. Joe tells Riley about all the great career opportunities that others in their family have had, like chefs, musicians, teachers, and others. Riley really can be anything.
I really liked this book about the ability for young Riley to be anything he can. The text is niceand so are the illustrations. I have one big nitpick with the art, though. On one page, Uncle Boz is a jazz musician who plays the trumpet, but the illustration shows someone holding a saxophone. In a story that gets so much right, this illustration really bugged me.
I received a review copy of this ebook from The Ella Riley Group and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
Riley's visiting his older cousin Joe and getting some future career advice along the way. Will he be a chef? A jazz musician? A doctor? Only time will tell.
I wish I lived in a world where it didn't attract my attention (and appreciation) that there are more books today with a positive message about diversity and possibilities for children of color. This book does not make a big deal at all over the fact that Riley's a non-white kid, but it's nice that there are books out there with a positive message for all kids.
Positive, upbeat, sweetly silly rhyming, and the illustrations are adorable. The pic of Riley's classroom with their little school uniforms made me *awww* out loud. (Really, I'm a total sappy marshmallow).
I can see this book becoming a favorite bedtime read. It's VERY short (24pages).
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
