If You Love Dolphins, You Could Be...

If You Love Dolphins, You Could Be... May Nakamura. Illustrated by Matalie Kwee. 2019. Simon & Schuster. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Do you love dolphins and other marine animals? Do you enjoy going to the beach and visiting aquariums?

Premise/plot: This is a nonfiction level two reader in a new series published by Simon & Schuster. The premise is simple: if you love dolphins, you could grow up to be... an aquatic veterinarian, a marine biologist, an underwater filmmaker. There's a chapter with loads of details for each job possibility.

My thoughts: I like both this one and If You Love Video Games, You Could Be... Both books, I believe, have great kid appeal. Nonfiction has certainly come a long way from when I was a kid.
