‘Well illustrated with a strong and very important message. The rhythm is a little clumsy in parts but, apart from that, an excellent book to have in any classroom.’
Primary school teacher, aged 46
‘I liked this book a lot. It is difficult to find books which inform very young children about what they can do when they grow up. But this book is perfect for that. I particularly loved the fact it was her mum and not her dad who was the engineer.’
Female Parent, aged 40
‘Excellent in every way. Easy to follow and visually strong. Fantastic message too.’
Primary school teacher and literacy co-ordinator, aged 55
‘This is a fun book. I’d like to make a submarine when I’m older. Or a big balloon.’ Boy, aged 7
‘A sweetly illustrated story with a powerful message. A BRONZE medal winner!’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
