Eight-year-old Billy has a very active imagination and loves to share what is on his mind. One day at school he was counting down the minutes until it was show-and-tell because he loved this week’s subject. They were to share what they wanted to be when they grew up. Billy new exactly what he was going to say and no one was going to get in his way. The vocabulary in this book is rich and exposes readers to many new words and ideas. The illustrations add to the humor of the story and do a great job of bring the story to life. It is also very enjoyable to read the text aloud. The word choice and rhyming are captivating. This would be a great book for all ages.
