#Giveaway "When I grow up, I want to be..Teacher, Navy, Army , FireFighter!" #Sorteo

Hello All,
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read the Privacy and Disclosures statements.

Summer is almost here and we are getting ready for our summer rides to our destination. We received some of these awesome books. Most nurturer, caregiver, trusted friend, companion and teacher will tell you that reading is very important. Even though there are many technological appliances to read, I still prefer to read a paper book. I am glad that I received the paper books to share with my children.

We received When I grow up, I want to be..A Teacher. Recently we celebrated Teacher's Week. I admired several teachers that makes life or learning seems to be so easy. I believe that teachers who love teaching is so admirable and really makes a difference in the children's life. Not everyone is a teacher. This book really is wonderful as a learning experience as it explains different aspect of a teacher and it is very interesting.

Carlee always wanted to be a teacher when she grew up, until her mother is hired as a teacher at her school! Some of her friends are even in her mother's class. Carlee is worried. What will her friends say? Will her mother do something to embarrass her? Carlee vows never to become a teacher like her mother, but as she journeys through the first day of school with her own new teacher, Carlee makes some surprising discoveries.

Here the children enjoy their books for a quiet night. They read about the book and then the following night they tell us about the book and what they think about being a teacher. They also exchange books to see what they can or cannot do being a Teacher or an Army personnel.

When Jake's teacher assigns a "career" project, Jake decides he wants to be a soldier in the United States Army. Jake and his father visit an Army surplus store to find items he can use to present his project. As they search the store, each item makes the history and proud spirit of the U.S. Army come to life for Jake and readers alike. Through Jake's discoveries, readers are introduced to the history of the U.S. Army, what soldiers' duties include, and the equipment they use.

I like the fact that the books are educational as well as entertaining and give ideas about that career that inspires young ones to set a goal. It is motivating and the fact that the child can relates to the circumstances is well done.
