Today I'm a...

Every day is an opportunity for a new adventure—and a new aspirational career—with Marisa Polansky’s and Maxine Lee’s Today I’m a… shaped picture board book series, which takes young children through a week in the life of different occupations.

“No ethnicities are specified, but the cast is racially diverse. The books are eye-catching and fun to handle; each is die cut in the shape of a happy child dressed for the book’s make-believe profession…On Sunday, Dr. Emma stays home to read up on the latest developments in animal health care, setting an excellent example for aspiring veterinarians. Both surprisingly charming and respectful of its readers.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review on Today I’m a Veterinarian)
