I WANT TO BE ......


Sofia wants to care for all the animals in the world. But Mom does not think Sofia is ready for the responsibility of even one pet. Ready or not, when a hungry and sick-looking cat appears at the family’s back doorstep, Sofia takes action. When Sofia is found feeding the cat, Mom gives in and agrees that a trip to the vet will tell them if the cat is healthy and not someone’s lost pet. As the veterinarian introduces Sofia and readers to the important and wide-ranging work of animal doctors, Sofia learns how she might help all kinds of animals, including a little stray cat!

Wigu Publishing is a collaboration among talented and creative individuals working together to publish informative and fun books for our children. Our titles serve to introduce children to the people in their communities who serve others through their vocations. Wigu's books are unique in that they help our children to visualize the abundant opportunities that exist for them to be successful and to make a difference. Our goal is to inspire the great leaders and thinkers of tomorrow.

Wigu's newly released children's book series, When I Grow Up I Want To Be..., features vocations many children dream about - a firefighter, a teacher, a soldier, a doctor - all combining engaging elements of storytelling with real world facts and information. Both educational and fun, the fully illustrated book series takes its readers on a journey of discovery, exploring how one finds their career, learns the necessary skills, and how they excel and grow within their chosen field.

 In most towns one of the most important person in the community is the veterinarian.  They make house, farm calls often in the middle of the worst of night and weather.It seems that usual the most calf or foal is born at midnight during a terrible winter storm.  Children love animals, whether they are toys or real live animals.  A lot of kids enjoy taking care of the animals.  Some children or tweens feel that being a vet is their life's dream.  You are on call 24/7 and must know a great deal of all animals.

The story is about Sofia, a young girl that wants a cat but her Mom says, absolutely NO!.  But Sophia's dreams may come true on a cold and rainy night when a wandering cat appears on their porch.  Sophia  creeps up and gives the cat some table scraps.  Shortly after that Samantha the cat is examined by the vet, Dr. Helen.   Could this be where Sophia starts to think of a career of being a vet? The author exposes the reader to an introduction to the joys and challenges of treating pets, livestock on the farm and even pets such as snakes and spiders. The author lists on t he last two pages the skills of a good vet and responsible pet owner.

I was  given a complimentary copy of WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE A VETERINARIAN from the Wigu Publication Co. for my view of the book.
No other compensation took place.

I would give a 5 STARS.
