"What Does It Mean To Be An Entrepreneur? was such a fun book to read with my six year old son. The first thing I noticed was the type of wording the authors chose to use. I felt the words were perfect to ignite a discussion with your child and talk further about being an entrepreneur. The illustrations were vibrant and helped tell the story. Also, kudos for including ethnic diversity. This book has a very positive vibe for kids to reach for the stars and if mistakes happen, you can learn from them and try again. We need more books like this one for our kids!

I asked my son some questions about the book.

What does it mean to be an entrepreneur?

It's not impossible. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Did you like the pictures in this book?

Yes, I really like the robots!

If you were an entrepreneur, what kind of ideas would you have?

I would make robots to do things for people. A robot to clean your room. A robot to park your car. A robot dog to help blind people cross the street.

"I am reading a list of picture books this summer, looking for ones to include in my junior high classroom library.

What I am looking for in the text, with teen readers in mind, is some dialogue, sentence variety, topic-specific vocabulary, and an idea or issue that will prompt teen readers to do deeper inquiry into that idea. I'd like the idea to promote diversity, as in including diverse voices and perspectives with a historical, environmental, social, and even global context.

The artwork is also important. I am looking for diverse faces and settings with images that teen readers can "read."

The artwork and the book itself are beautiful. Little Pickle Press is environmentally active in its choice of materials. For the text, well, I wanted more narration; however, I do appreciate how the book was complicating common sense ideas of what an entrepreneur is. At some points, I found myself believing that I am an entrepreneur by "being brave and determined enough to create an innovative solution." Typically, when schools and media talk about being an entrepreneur (and on Shark tank) there is always an element of "making money," which this book minimizes for its young readers. However, by the end, I felt like I was reading a speech with a call-to-action closing, "So let's encourage each other to discover if we have what it takes to be an entrepreneur." So it has a didactic, informative quality about it that you would expect from the title relying on the art work to tell the story of "how."
