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:
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!
