“The students at Brandt loved the book! They were very engaged with talking about what they want to be when they grow up. They loved how Rosie was able to change her mind, just like they do all the time! I highly recommend this book to other kindergarten classes as it is a great opinion piece for writing samples.”
"As an educational administrator the communication of equity to all learners is critical to me. I am so inspired by the messaging found within the books authored by Marissa Klein. She gets it! She presents the idea of non-gender specific career aspirations in such an approachable and developmentally appropriate way that you sit back and wonder why others have failed to do the same. I am inspired by her words but most importantly her lead character, Rosie, has inspired hundreds of young readers in my school! Kudos to you."
“I cannot say enough good things about The Dream Big Academy book series! From the way it’s written to the inspiring message. My son LOVES both books and we have made it a part of our bedtime routine. Of course he Loves Rosie Wants to be a Fireman since he’s obsessed with firetrucks but also really enjoys Rosie Wants to be a Dancer. He loves the pictures and Q&A at the end of the book! It allows us to interact and start conversations about what Mommy does for work and what he can be when he grows up. Highly recommend!!”
