“What I want to be” is the theme in Zack’s class. But where will he start? He has so many ideas, he can’t limit himself to just one!
In rhyming verse, Zack details his plans for becoming an astronaut, a cowboy, and singer, just to name a few. But after he boasts of his talents, another voice chimes in with Zack’s limitations. When he feels down about having such ambitious dreams, he finds out that it really is okay to reach for the stars.
Kids love to think about what they will be when they grow up. Dreaming big now gives them the drive to work hard toward their goals. Ambition’s Not an Awful Word shows them both sides of their career options in a humorous and fun way. After all, there is no need to decide now. They have years to make such an important decision.
