When I Grow Up I Want To Be… is a series of children’s books that covers different professions. In When I Grow Up I Want To Be… a Veterinarian! Sofia desperately wants a pet but her mum always refuses as she says to keep a pet you have to be very responsible to look after one properly. But no matter how many times her mum says no Sofia just loves animals and keeps dreaming of having her own pet one day.
Then one rainy night a stray cat appears in the darkness and Sofia’s mum eventually relents and lets Sofia keep it as a pet after a visit to the vet. And the cat is going to bring Sofia another surprise!
This is an excellent story for young animal lovers and teaches about looking after pets and how responsible you need to be own one and to look after their health and wellbeing.
This book briefly explains different kinds of vets including ones for domesticated animals, equine animals, large animals, wildlife animals, marine life and avian vets.
A great story about the care of animals with some great illustrations and photos of different kinds of animals. If your child loves animals and has visions of becoming a vet then this book is a great introduction into the world of veterinary medicine or as Sofia calls it, an animal detective!
Again this is another fun and educational read from the When I Grow Up series by Wigu Publishing.
