When I Grow Up (Book Review)

WIGU is a new series of books that start "When I Grow Up..."

We received this one to review:
Wigu Publishing | #childrensbooks #firefighter 

My 3 year old is really into fire stations and such right now, so this was the perfect fit for us!  The book follows a little boy named Will whose class is taking a field trip to the fire station.  It is super cute and a neat mix of illustrations and real life photos. See what I mean?

This book addresses some fears about fire and firemen. Will is scared particularly of the gear that the firemen wear.  This is a common fear for children and it's good to see it addressed in a book.  He eventually overcomes his fear and decides that he might like to be a firefighter.

The book is a bit long---we read it in two settings for the 3 yr old.  A class of first graders could sit and listen to it all at once, but if you have a preschooler you may need to read it in two different settings.

You can purchase the book on Amazon for under $10.  Perfect addition to a classroom library, or as a birthday gift for any young future firefighters!

  1. New follower here. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge, and I look forward to visiting again.


  2. Cute idea for a book;) I wonder what other jobs they have...?

    1. I know they have one about being in the military, one about being a teacher, one for being a veterinarian, and a bunch of others too!


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
