|What Will I Be?: A Wish Book by Kathleen Krull Cowles,|
illustrated by Eulala Conner. Golden Press / Western Publishing Company, 1979.
Here is a fine example of diversity in children's books, circa 1979. This darling Little Golden Book is simple: a bunch of kids daydream about what they might be or do when they grow up. Some of those things are actual jobs, some are fantasy, some veer into other directions. But look at the illustrations! We have children of different colors, a child in a wheelchair, girls daydreaming about being firefighters and train engineers, boys wanting to be dancers or chefs. Enjoy!
