9781847800596: When I Grow Up

This innovative book takes an alternative look at 12 occupations and the people who fill them. It's aim is to open up children's imaginations to the possibility that there are many more roles open to them than they may think. It doesn't just simply depict male nurses, female engineers and similar familiar sterotype-busting examples, but more broad-ranging examples of unusual people doing unusual jobs, such as Sikh lollipop man, a female clown and a black British Space Scientist. Benjamin Zephaniah's lyrical and amusing text also draws on his own experience of being stereotyped and misjudged because of the colour of his skin and the stle of his hair. Prodeepta Das is a master of photographing people in everyday situations and he brings to this project all the skill that made We Are Britain such an outstanding book. Jobs featured: Lollipop man, Clown, Space Scientist, Laywer, Concervational, Farmer, Vet, Pilot, Illustrator, Chef, Museum Director, Architect.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Maggie does Rocket Science
She makes robots that go to space
To take a look at Mars.
And instruments like telescopes
To see beyond the stars.
At school she really likes science,
Her interests were diverse,
And now all that she wants to do is
Tour the universe.
The satellites she makes have shown
How our climate is changing,
Experiments have shown the earth needs us
To start behaving.
We all know that the time is now
But Maggie Aderin wants to know
When did this time begin?
