 Editorial Reviews


"Here is another great book to add to the series of When I Grow Up I Want To
Be.... I really enjoy reading these books and so does my child. I have to say,
after she started reading this series, I think it really sparked something in her to
take a broader look at what is out there and not settle for something typical."
--Dona Young, Allergy Kid Mom's Book Reviews

From the Back Cover

"As an educator, I am highly impressed with this motivating, engaging, and very
Wigu book about America's Armed Forces. Families and teachers
will find the book's content and lively illustrations to be both positive and very
well expressed. Well done!" --Helene J. Sherman, Ed.D., Professor, Assoc

I have read and reviewed several of the Wigu Publishing books.   My sister's grandson loves them, so when I'm done, i send them to him.  They are very well written for children with pictures in thee cartoon style and also  real life pictures.  Along with the pictures there is quite a bit of information.  I think even though the child might be young, the book will put their imagination to work to perhaps decide if they would like to be in the military or not.
The author takes the reader into a classroom where an assignment to do a report on what they want to be when they get older.    The reader follows Jake who has decided he would like to look into being into the Army.
Since they are to dress up as to what they would like to bee, Jake and his Dad go to the GI Surplus store and Jake gets to see all of the equipment and uniforms, almost everything that being in the Military would  be needed. This book, like the other WIGU books are very good learning experiences..  These WIGU books are some of the best children's books I've read.  They are an interesting, learning and mind engaging stories with lots of information and pictures.  All these books are quality made.

I received a complimentary copy of WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO the U.S. Army!  from the WIGU Publishing Company for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
