Professional Book Review: I Can Be Anything by Jerry Spinelli

“When you grow up,
what do you want to be and why?”

ABOUT THE BOOK

In this exuberant book by a Newbery Award winner, a little boy explores all the fun and exciting things he can be when he grows up. Spinelli’s simple and charming rhymes are accompanied by vibrant and fantastical illustrations created by internationally renowned illustrator Liao. Full color. [http://www.goodreads.com/]

ABOUT THE  AUTHOR 

He grew up in rural Pennsylvania and went to college at Gettysburg College and Johns Hopkins University. He has published more than 25 books and has six children and 16 grandchildren.

Jerry Spinelli began writing when he was 16 — not much older than the hero of his book Maniac Magee. After his high school football team won a big game, his classmates ran cheering through the streets — all except Spinelli, who went home and wrote a poem about the victory. When his poem was published in the local paper, Spinelli decided to become a writer instead of a major-league shortstop.[http://www.goodreads.com/]

BOOK REVIEW

It’s one of the most frequently asked questions of children of all ages: what do you want to be when you grow up? This little boy has lots of possibilities: he could be, for instance, “a puddle stomper, apple chomper, mixing-bowl licker, tin-can kicker”. This book is like a love letter to possibilities, the idea that you can be anything you want to be. The exuberance bounds off the page along with the little boy and his rabbit friend. The rhymes and illustrations make it a natural choice to share with children, but, as the cover points out, it’s also good for children-at-heart who might be poised on the cusp of their own future.
