When I Grow Up by Tina Louise


When I Grow Up by Tina Louise

If a firefly can glow in the dark, I can shine on the silver screen! Nature is full of extraordinary animals who can do extraordinary things. If animals can do it, why can't we? In this inspiring book from actress Tina Louise (of Gilligan's Island ), each animal's unique skills are compared to possible careers for children. Tina, who volunteers extensively in schools and is a strong champion of literacy, is committed to heavily promoting this book. When I Grow Up shows that if we just look around us, amazing things are happening all the time - so we can be amazing, too!
