Part alphabet book, part dress-up, and part career book—and all fun, from A to Z!

ABC…. What can I be?

The possibilities are nearly endless—and in this fun picture book, an inclusive group of kids play-acts all sorts of occupations. Dressing in grown-up work clothes, the children try out some familiar roles, like artist and athlete for A, and some less-common ones—from beekeeper and biochemist to zipper-maker and Zumba instructor.

With a hundred different jobs and interests represented, Caitlin McDonagh’s bright illustrations are filled with funny, hidden details that will bring sharp-eyed readers back again and again.

This imaginative, joyful picture book shares a wonderful message about exploring all the possibilities, and opens up all kinds of discussions about the careers people embark upon—while also reinforcing basic reading skills. Perfect for reading aloud and sure to spark imaginative play!

DEBUT AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Caitlin is an exciting new talent

MULTIPURPOSE: This is a career book, an alphabet book, and a dress-up book all in one, with a wide and interesting variety of careers for young readers to explore as it supports several layers of early childhood learning.

HUMOR AND DETAIL: While the story is pretty straightforward, touches of humor (like one of the hairdressers cutting off too much, and a yoga-posing hamster) will delight sharp-eyed readers and make this title a favorite to reread.

A Magna Cum Laude graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, Caitlin McDonagh was a student of award-winning Holiday House author and illustrator Eric Velasquez, who has been her mentor. The ABCs of What I Can Be is her first picture book.

“Diverse children act out 100 different careers, organized alphabetically from ’astronaut’ to ’Zumba instructor’…Readers will love choosing their favorite.”Kirkus Reviews


“This alphabet of occupations and hobbies features a diverse cast of children, depicted in appealing panels, exploring jobs spanning from artist to zumba instructor…. Libraries and schools looking for distinct alphabet books, or ways to introduce various occupations will find this a pleasant addition.”School Library Journal


“Artist, doctor, firefighter, plumber, chef, police officer, soldier, or teacher might appear on many children’s lists of potential adult jobs, but what about upholsterer, biochemist, zipper maker, mathematician, oil rigger, or yodeler? This charming occupational exploration ranges from the familiar to the fanciful (though all are actual jobs), suggesting many directions for children to consider…. The large variety of activities may provoke serious contemplation about future possibilities, while the funny situations on some pages keep the tone light.” —Booklist
