A really fun story about growing up to share with your young child. Children will begin to think what they might want to be when they grow up as they join Fergus, the little pup, as he asks lots of other dogs what he should be. All the answers are different - obedient, friendly, helpful and lots more suggestions too but when he gets home his mother tells him there is one particularly important one...

This is part of our successfull series Storytime which includes What's the Time Wilfred Wolf by Jessica Barrah.

Beautifully illustrated, this series introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Discussion points for parents and teachers are also included.

Reviews

This is a charming book for young audience which aims to answer some of the big questions that they will have about growing up. (...) The illustrations are bright and lively, really bringing the story alive and the book has a series of questions at the end that can be used with a group of young children. Carousel Without a doubt, Nursery and KS1 pupils will be drawn to it like a magnet. -- Angela Redfern School Librarian This tale is just super cute!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
