Sandy’s Dream

By: Jared Rader. Format: eBook. Read: December 2013.

Sandy and her friends are all talking about what they want to be when they grow up. Sandy mentions that she wants to be a doctor, but one of the boys declares that girls can’t be doctors. Later on, when they visit a sick Grandpa in the hospital, there is a female doctor taking care of him. Sandy starts to question, whether or not her dream can come true.

Sandy’s Dream is a cute, short, picture book. The drawings are beautiful, while sentences are short and easy-to-understand. The ending is very abrupt and leaves some unanswered questions. However, this is great story for young girls to know that they can be anything they wish.

As kid, I dreamed of growing up to be a doctor and a lawyer. (I even had my schedule worked out so that I could divide my time evenly.) What about you, what was your dream job?
