Children’s Book Review: When I Grow Up I want To Be….in the U.S. Navy

Noah Tours An Aircraft Carrier

Published By: Wigu Publishing

I absolutely love this series from Wigu Publishing.  I have reviewed several of their other books in the series including U.S. Army, Teacher, and Firefighter.

In this book, Noah, his sister Marina, and his Grandpa Ed get to tour an aircraft carrier.  Grandpa Ed is a Navy veteran and is able to give Noah and Marina a complete tour and explanation of all the areas of the ship. Noah and Marina are typical a brother and sister and their antics make the story relatable to children.

Just like the other books in the series, there is plenty of educational information and historical facts included with the story of Noah and his sister. In fact, I learned things about the Navy right along with our daughter as we read it.  Our family has toured an aircraft carrier, but there were things I didn’t realize about how the ship is really a city in itself.  Everyone is important on an aircraft carrier from the Captain, the pilots, the deckhands, and the dishwashers.  Everyone’s job is important and critical to keeping the crew members and our nation safe.

This book is a great way to share with your child what the Navy is all about whether you have a family member who served, one who is currently serving in the Navy, or not.  It is also a great way to teach your child about those who serve to protect us, in big and small ways, each and every day.

I highly recommend this book as well as all of the rest of the books in the series, WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE.  Books to come in the series include Veterinarian, Nurse, Race Car Driver, U.S. Air Force, Police Officer, and a Good Person.  For more on this series of books, check out Wigu Publishing at

    My dad was in the Navy so I've been on quite a few aircraft carriers. This sounds like a terrific book!
