When I grow up…

What did you want to be when you grew up?  Did you actually become a policeman, geologist, fireman, teacher, mom, or astronaut?  This month’s book list is all about childhood dreams and becoming adults who continue to grow and dream.    We are excited to bring you some new finds we know will become favorites in your home and/or classroom.

Some of my favorite books as a child were from the Childhood of Great American series.  I can still see the orange covers with black silhouettes, lined side by side in my classroom bookcase.  As I read through the entire series from left to right, I came to believe that if the children in those books could grow up to impact the world in their own unique way, then maybe so could I.

Read biographies to your children to show how those who work hard can do remarkable things.  Feel free to download the list below and take it with you as you visit your local library.  And don’t forget to  check in with us often here at FirefliesBlog as we review several of our absolute favorites this month.

One more thing… look what I recently found yesterday in an antique bookstore – one of my “one friends”.  I can’t wait to share it with my littles.
