Young Mason loves watching and helping his daddy work. Lillie Penelope Humphries shares Mason’s adventure with her readers in Mason the Mechanic: You Can Be Anything You Want to Be. This children’s book is a great reminder that children love to emulate their parents. Mason decides that he wants to be just like his dad when he grows up—a mechanic. Parents can use this book to help their children understand that waiting until they become adults is difficult, but there are things they can do even at an early age. Mason decides he will go ahead and do some type of work fixing things. He finds a project in the neighborhood and then applies his limited knowledge to fix the problem. He learns that real work is hard, and it might be wiser to wait until he is bigger and stronger to work full-time.

Lillie Penelope Humphries has authored a charming children’s book in Mason the Mechanic. Like most youngsters, Mason desires to become just like his dad. Mason not only dreams of one day being like his dad but starts on an adventure of trying to find work and be like his dad. Lillie captures the heart of a young child and shares realistic thoughts that are common to young children. The book is written in simple language so young readers can enjoy reading the story for themselves. Lillie has also richly illustrated this book in a way that will engage the mind and imagination of a child. This book should help parents realize their responsibility to guide their children as they develop into adults. Read this book to or with your child and encourage them to follow their dreams. Lillie has given a great read-with-your-child book for parents to use as a starting point in guiding their children on their life journey.

"Mason The Mechanic" is a wonderful book to read to children or for them to read. It is written so the children can understand every part of Mason's adventure to be a mechanic on his own. The illustrations are colorful and explains what he is doing from page to page. All the children, the book has been read to, enjoyed it very much; especially the interactive part, where they stand up and dance like Mason.

"Mason The Mechanic" is easy for kids to understand. Mason wants to be just like his dad, as most young boys do. Mason's cat Waffle, spends time with him on his adventure. Children with pets can relate to that part of the book. Mason has a friend he talks to throughout parts of the book. When he ask his friend, Mr. Colorful Snake, questions ,of course the snake does not answer with words. Children think this is funny. Mason goes through many thought processes during his adventure, this will
encourage children to figure out solutions to the problems they encounter in their day to day activities. I give this book 5 stars.
