   Super father/son book for a bedtime story.
I did not expect the sweet artwork or the beautiful fatherson story. My students really liked the book and I'm going to read it to my son when I finish up with it in the class. The story tells about the interaction between the father turtle and his son, as his son tells him what he wants to be when he grows up. If you'd like to read a book for a father to his young son, I recommend this. It reminds me of a lot of what my father told me when I grew up. I think it has a message that a lot of sons want to hear from their fathers. I plan to write a message to my son in our copy of this book and keep it on his shelf for him to discover long after he has forgotten about it as a bedtime story in the future.
   I've used this book for my work as a kindergarten teacher
As a kindergarten teacher, I had already used this beautiful book as a foundation for working with children. The 3-year-olds love looking at the illustrations and having the story read to them. We talked about their parents'jobs and their own dream jobs. We also talked about the favorite pets of the children. In our kindergarten we even organised a small exhibition of these drawings. When I Grow Up... is a really nice book!
   A touching story of parental love
This story really touched the bottom of our hearts. Reading the book to our two children, we felt so close to them. This book tells in an artistically simple way what parental love really means. The scene of Father Turtle telling his son that his greatest wish has always been to become a father so sweet and tender that it brings tears to our eyes every time we read it. A beautiful book, simply beautiful!
   My sons's favourite bedtime story
My son Fabian loves this book and so do I. It is a sweet story with funny scenes about Sebastian, the little turtle and his wishes for occupations. At the end of the day, when Father Turtle and his son cuddle with each other, it is a peaceful moment of loving and caring for each other. I can only recommend this book to everyone to share it with their little ones.
   Exceptional synopsis of Af-Am achievements
D.L. : Withers takes her talent of incorporating rhyme with factual information about important figures in African-American history and introduces both young and old to many who they may never have met before! I use this in my classroom to include the multi-cultural aspect of our curriculum in an informative and entertaining way. Withers'next book is!
   The best book for children!
I read this book every night to my sweet sister and we were both very fascinated by the little story. The book is very nice and quite romantic. I recommend this book to anyone who loves his children and wants to read it to them.
   One of my favorites
Illustrations are some of our favorite things. Today I am ordering for my 1st great grandson due in April!
