Who I'd Recommend to: Fans of 365 Days of Wonder and other inspirational books full of great advice.
Resumes for Children 17 - Years Old Under is a detailed guide of sample resumes that show how children's talents, skills, abilities, and challenges can propel them to success. Inside the book you'll meet a student pilot with a 3rd Class Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Medical Certificate, a child book reviewer, a Junior Open Water Diver and more. The sample cover letters are guides to show parents how to obtain other peoples' money to assist in the growth and development of their children. This is one of the most dynamic resources available to children on the move and to those needing loving motivation to move.

I always consider myself a "doer" when it comes to achieving goals and dreams. I'm not fond of the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" because I don't see any reason why you can't go out and do it as a child. For example, I want to be an author. I've already written a lot of stories, created many websites, etc. People usually seemed surprised that I do this "much" at a young age, when really, I'm not doing much at all. So this book was something I could immediately connect with and see as a valuable resource. However, to me, the best part was not the sample resumes, but the inspirational headings. "Don't wait for others to create your road to success" would be a perfect example of that (pg. 16 in Resumes for Children 17 Years and Under). Recently, many of my friends went through the hectic process of trying to get into private schools for Junior High. This would be a very helpful guide for cases such as those. All in all, an inspirational and valuable guide to "getting things done" as a kid.
NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
