Description
 

“What do I want to be when I grow up?”
It’s the question children love to ponder (and act out) at an early age.

Here’s a question we parents might want to ask ourselves:
“How can I gently and lovingly help my children discern what God is calling them to be?”
And here’s a beautiful answer:
Read So Many Ways to Be Holy: A Child’s Book about Vocations with your child.

Charming pictures
of children playing dress-up capture the joy that is to be found in all kinds of lives of service -- from being an artist, a doctor, or an astronaut to becoming a priest, a brother, or a nun, and more!

For each occupation, your child will learn
the patron saint who would protect and guide them
to use their talents for the glory of God!
Did you know that the patron saint of scientists is St. Albert the Great?
And what about the patron saint of ...
farmers?
dancers?
cooks?
or fire fighters or truck drivers or ...?
After sparking childish imaginations, the book closes with this sweet prayer:

God, send your Holy Spirit
to help me
become the person
you made me to be;
to listen for your call; and to answer with a glad heart. Amen

Very Impressed! January 29, 2019
Reviewer: Jennifer from Pennsylvania  
This book is a great one for the toddler/preschool/early elementary crowd!  It begins by introducing the concept that we're all called to holiness, but that God has other plans for us too.  The book continues with various occupations described in rhyming text.  Each occupation has its patron saint printed at the bottom of the page.  There are colorful photographs of children practicing each profession.  Brother, priest, nun, and married life are then presented.  At the very end, listening to God with your heart is emphasized, and there is a short prayer.

This book presents an imperative topic in a fun, simple way for young children to understand.  Toddlers may not understand the concepts, but will love the rhyming text.  Preschoolers-elementary students naturally begin thinking of what they want to do when grown, and I love that this book stresses the importance of listening to the Holy Spirit's prompting in that decision making process, and that above all, we're called to be holy.
