From firefighters to entrepreneurs; veterinarians to doctors, these are the best kids books to read with your children to teach them about all of the job and career possibilities their future awaits. As they read and learn about different professions and work, their passion and preference will narrow and their imagination and exploration will widen. Or...they might just decide that they'd like to read children's literature for a living (these are that good)! This list has books for ages 0-12 to help them answer the age-old question "What do I want to be when I grow up?" Try toggling the list to board books for simple and inspiring titles like "I Can Dream" for little ones to pre-K. Filter the list to picture books to find books geared for elementary students, such as "Career Day" by Anne Rockwell or books about specific jobs. Select chapter books on the list to find titles involving motivating and educational stories of different jobs for middle school readers to enjoy and learn from. Any of these titles would also make fantastic read alouds for multiple children or bigger groups! With the variety of titles on this list, you're sure to find new, inspiring books about many professions. Let us know if you have any favorites you'd like added to the list!
