"The I Want To Be series provides young readers with some exciting opportunities to think about... an attractive choice for beginning readers. Recommended."
-- Library Media Connection

This best-selling series of 17 titles has sold more than 800,000 copies since publication and earned excellent reviews and praise for the range of occupations it features. With vibrant color pictures and plain text, the I Want To Be series is an appealing introduction to a broad spectrum of occupations, from Pilot to Chef to Cowboy, making them ideal for inclusion in Community Helpers and other Common Core Correlations Social Studies and Language Arts units.

New photos show Policewomen with contemporary uniforms and state-of-the-art equipment. Firefighters' uniforms protect better; Builders are women as well as men; many of the Nurses are male. This reflects the society that kids are seeing now. And the books are attractively priced, at $3.99. This is the same price as in 1998.

Mainly, children will enjoy the I Want To Be books for the pictures, reading to themselves, seeing everyday people doing important jobs, like the adults in their family and in their dreams and aspirations.

Review Quotes
[Review of previous edition:] These colorful titles feature candid photographs of friendly community helpers in different situations with accompanying texts describing what each professional is doing... Readers are introduced to pediatricians, surgeons, nurse practitioners, and EMTs. Liebman offers a very positive view of how doctors help to make people feel better, but doesn't hide the fact that some medical procedures are painful... Recommended for schools and public libraries.
