Maybe I'll Be an Architect written by Tenille Bettenhausen and beautifully illustrated by Ira Baykovska is a gem of a book. The protagonist, a little girl, wonders about her future career. In so doing, she tells us about so many career paths she could embark on. Each of these jobs is described and this gives our little ones great ideas. But what is essential in this book is that the little girl (who is not named on purpose, as she represents all the girls and boys from the whole world) never worries. She knows, deep down in her heart, that she would excel in whatever career path she chooses because she is hard-working, serious, and will give her best.
Maybe I'll Be an Architect by Tenille Bettenhausen is the fabulous story of a little girl who wants to become an architect but explores her other options. What I loved about this children’s book is the enthusiasm for knowledge, the way hard work, motivation, and the desire to excel are paramount to her projects. The messages are clear and should be shared with all small children. The only thing that prevents you from succeeding and doing what you set your mind to is your beliefs. Believing you cannot do something is not going to help at all. This little girl is self-confident, conscious of what lies ahead, and ready to take on the challenge and that’s the beauty of this lovely story. The illustrations by Ira Baykovska are gorgeous and set this book apart. Thank you to both Tenille and Ira for this work of art!
