Another wonderful children's story, Geared for preschool to elementary school children. Every child has certain things they want to be when they grow up. The story is about two sisters that want to be princesses but start to wonder if they can be a professional such as a firefighter. Ms. Roman always write nice, clean, non violent stories that have a lesson to be learned. Children need the encouragement to know they can be whatever they want. They also need to know that they can be more than one at a time. The sky is the limit. Sometimes pretending leads to a profession and sometimes children will grow up to be something different. They just have to give it a try and if it doesn't work out, try something else. Just stick to something that you care about and like doing. The story is rhyming which also keeps the attention of the reader. Colorful illustrations to go with the story. Very colorful and eye catching. Interesting and always with a lesson to be learned. Great addition to your child's bookshelf, to be read again and read again. Pick up a copy for your young one and let them tell you what they want to be when they grow up. Remember: they need encouragement

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Carole P. Roman in exchange for my unbiased review.

I would give this book 5 Solid Stars.
