The World Is Waiting For Youby Barbara Kerley
“A stirring invitation to leap, dive, soar, plunge and thrill to the natural world’s wonders and glories.” –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 stargazing inspires future astronauts. 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.
