    When I was in elementary school I wanted to be a Karate Guy when I got older Apparently I wasn’t aware of the whole “you have to make some money” thing It just sounded like a cool job to me As a child I didn’t know I would grow up to be a children’s librarian I’m guessing the same goes for kids who grow up to be alpaca farmers “When I Grow Up” contains a collection of uniue professions that will be useful for kids thinking of the future A solid addition to your careers section14 uncommon professions are represented here from entomologist study of insects to robotics engineer I was pleased to see that they actually profile people associated with each career instead of just providing facts It puts a human face on the jobs A healthy dose of photographs show these individuals at work giving a behind the scenes look at their day to day tasks And there are some fairly obscure jobs that deserve that “inside look” treatment as this may be the first time a cheese maker chocolatier and kite designer all have shared the same pagesIt should be stated that “When I Grow Up” is not your first stop for career titles but a supporting one Be sure you’re stocked up on the conventional jobs before adding this into the mixDeciding what you want to do when you grow up is a big decision Often times a kid will end up choosing a career that wasn’t on their radar until they got older “When I Grow Up” does its part to shed some light on jobs that don’t get much attention A useful book that I was happy to see
