Item Details

"A stirring invitation to leap, dive, soar, plunge and thrill to the natural world's wonders and glories."nbsp; --Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW "What do you want to be when you grow up?" is a question kids get asked over and over. But very few connections are made for kids between the present and the future. This book shows kids a pathway from their current interests and talents to a future career or interest. And in so doing, it also encourages adventure, exploration, and discovery, three core principles of National Geographic's mission. It's a celebration of possibility--so simple and so profound. Jumping in puddles can inspire scuba diving. Dirty hands can lead to dinosaur bones! Backyard star-gazing inspires future astronauts. Perfectly selected photos make the connections compelling and the future real for kids, then rich back matter brings the message home with inspirational quotes from the real-life adventurers pictured in the images. Grown-ups won't be able to resist sharing this inspirational message with kids, and kids won't be able to resist the invitation to let their imaginations run wild.

List - Nonfiction Books for Storytime by: JCLKateC Apr 18, 2013

With brief text and stunning photographs, the book encourages children to explore their world and beyond. I plan to use in a toddler storytime.
