Thank you so much to BookSirens and April Peter for the ebook copy of this book to read and review.
Review: This was adorable and so educational. I love that a series like this exists for girls showing them so many different careers that they may want to pursue one day and what exactly it looks like and will take to do it.
It’s so positive, with the incredible art work that shows everything that is being talked about within the book. It’s such a sweet and wonderful empowering book for young readers. It shows diversity, different skills and with this one showed team work.
I really enjoyed this quick read, it is certainly one I’d recommend to anyone with young kids this series will teach them much.
Plus at the back of the book is a fun cut out section of paper dolls that the children can play with and re-enact the story or create their own. It’s such a sweet addition to the book.
