This is a great book about following your dreams. There is a lot about the Asian culture in this book. You can learn a lot from the pictures, and there are a lot of different types of jobs mentioned in the book. Some examples included the silk weaver, rice merchand, mason, and fishmonger. Awesome book.

Jennifer Armstrong learned to read and write in Switzerland, in a small school for English speaking children on the shores of Lake Zurich. The school library had no librarian and no catalog – just shelves of interesting books. She selected books on her own, read what she could, and made up the rest. It was perfect. As a result, she made her career choice – to become an author – in first grade. Whe ...more
