I Want to Be... : A Gutsy Girls' ABC

$10.95 Sale Save

An alphabet of possibilities for every little girl—fun, unusual, and a bit quirky!

Some jobs immediately sound fun—Candy Maker anyone?! And some jobs sound exciting—Oceanographer, Sportscaster, Aerialist! And some jobs—Kite Designer, Wind Farmer, Party Planner—sound so wonderful it’s hard to believe that they exist! Babies and toddlers will follow along with this ABC as it explores some of the amazing, and often unusual, jobs that people do. Each fun letter is complemented by an illustration of a girl filled with delight and wonder as she shows us how we can be, quite literally, anything we want to be.
