Book Review/Giveaway: When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Good Person! Ends March 5th

When I grow up

Book Review: Blake and Brendan would do almost anything to get out of going to Mr. Becket’s funeral. It will be boring and sad-and dead people are scary! There might even be ghosts! But Mom and Dad insist. Mr. Becket was a good person, and it is right to gather with his family and friends to remember him and all the good things he did. So what’s so good about remembering a dead person? A lot. Readers learn with Blake and Brendan what it means to be a good person and all the ways a good person makes a difference in people’s lives, even long after they’re gone.


  • Series: When I Grow Up…
  • Paperback: 50 pages
  • Cost: $10.95


My Review: After their mom insisted that they go with them to attend Mr. Becket’s funeral, Blake and Brendan found out how important Mr. Becket was to the people and the community.

They learnt how Mr. Becket cared for those who could not stand up for themselves. That he mentor young men, coach different sports, he taught kids how to deal with winning and losing and how to do both gracefully. The boys also learnt that Mr. Becket not only helped people but animals too. They notice that Mr. Becket was liked a lot. They wonder if they can be as good a person as Mr. Becket when they grow up.

This is an inspirational book for children to learn how to be responsible in learning how to help others. The illustrations are bright and bold which helps tell the story.

At the end of the story is a short story about The Elephant and the Blind Man.

  2. I just came from the Wigus site. They have a lot of interesting info for parents and kids reading. There aren’t any books quite like this for kids that I’m aware of so this would be a great teaching read. Thanks for the giveaway and post.

  3. This sounds like a great book for bedtime reading, leaving the kids with good thoughts to think of at the end of their day. I like the other titles in the series, especially Army & Navy.
