Book six in the award-winning What Does It Mean To Be …?® series, What Does It Mean To Be An Entrepreneur?
“This book takes a big ‘adult’ concept and unpacks it for young children with a punchy story and bright attractive illustrations…. Rae, the young protagonist, displays characteristics and skills that any teacher would want to promote in her classroom. Who wouldn’t want to encourage kids in, ‘working harder than you ever imagined—all while feeling joy,’ or ‘having the humility to learn from your mistakes?’” —Joanna Marple, Miss Marple’s Musings
