Book Recommendation: When I Grow Up I Want to Be
Normally, this blog focuses on semi-retirement advice. But in this post I want to talk about a terrific new book that can help you provide career guidance to the special young people in your life.
If you’re looking for a meaningful gift for your grandchild/niece/nephew/etc., consider giving them a copy of WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE…, by Karleen Tauszik. This delightful book is the first-ever career journal designed for kids ages 6-18. It’s a wonderful way to encourage them to start thinking about their strengths and talents from an early age.
In WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE…, children answer just a few questions every year from ages 6 to 18. This gives them a written record of their true strengths, talents and achievements that they can then look back on when making career choices in the future.
The book is filled with thought-provoking questions that will likely prompt many interesting conversations about the child’s interests and dreams — and maybe your own second-act career goals as well!
