Noah is excited for the chance to tour a real aircraft carrier with his Grandpa Ed, a proud Navy veteran. He is not excited that his little sister, Marina, is tagging along. Still, Noah tries to be patient. Readers chuckle and follow along as the siblings learn that each deck, each crewmember, and each piece of equipment adds another chapter to the history of the U.S. Navy and its mission to protect our country. Noah and Marina's curiosity helps introduce readers to the complex and exciting work of an aircraft carrier and how each crewmember plays a vital role in its functioning.
"A thoroughly enjoyable, readable adventure aboard a Navy flattop for any boy or girl. A fitting tribute to the U.S. Navy and to the men and women dedicated to serving our country." - Captain A. Stewart (USN Pacific Fleet, Ret.)
When I Grow Up I Want to Be...in the U.S. Navy takes young readers on a journey inside an aircraft carrier and enlightens them on what it means to be in the U.S. Navy.
Grandpa Ed has promised to take Noah to visit the U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier that has ported in his city and Noah can't wait. While on board Noah learns all sorts of interesting facts about the carrier as well as the hard work and dedication that is expected of the men and women in the Navy. Now, Noah is certain he wants to be in the Navy when he grows up, even if his little sister joins too.
When I Grow Up I Want to Be...in the U.S. Navy is a wonderfully written, entertaining, and educational story. It teaches children about Naval history while giving them a glimpse of what it's like to work on an aircraft carrier. I really like the use of actual photos along with the illustrations which help to give children a realistic image of what they can expect to see aboard an aircraft carrier.
I recommend picking up a copy of When I Grow Up I Want to Be...in the U.S. Navy. Available on Amazon.
