WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Dream It & Do It by Holly Sharp is a perfect book for young kids who want to find their place in this world and what they would like to be when they are older”- Readers Favorite 5 Star Review
“I am thrilled to share my story about the power of science. The journey to discovery itself is so interesting, but then to witness how it can improve people’s lives is a thrill beyond description. Holly Sharp has done such a beautiful service to society in inspiring children to work hard and follow their passions.”- Jean Bennett (geneticist helping reverse blindness)
“Your work is very very important for kids. There is no wonder that you received a pre-launch 5 star review from “Readers’ Favorite”– Majd Mashharawi (Founder of Materials Engineering Startup)
“This helps children to create their own serendipity”–Gianna Gaudinin (Google event planner)
“Reading is for everyone and can help you achieve your own dream it and do it dreams–whatever they might be!”- Dawn Wacek librarian featured on Ted Talk®
“I believe that young girls need to see role models in all professions, and young boys need to see women in these roles as well. While growing up, I wish I had the advice and vision this book offers to young people”- Rochelle Jones (one of FDNY’s first female firefighters)
This is an excellent resource for grade school children who want to explore careers in different fields. It covers creative to science-based employment, what you need to know to get the job as well as the necessary skills and education. It has a good diversity of role models and some unique choices that I had never thought of. There are a lot of careers that are not things everyone would normally think as being a career choice. I wish I would have had something like this growing up.
Sharp spent the bulk of her career in new product development—dreaming up intuitive ideas from how to kill bugs to new ice cream forms to hit grocery shelves. A self-proclaimed problem-solver, she loves to think about the things that the world needs and figuring out how to make those things come to life. “Knowing in high school what I wanted to do with my life set me up for the right path. I wanted the same for my child and searched for books to guide her, but came up short,” Sharp said. “That’s when I thought, ‘why not write the book for my child that she needs and that will also help others?”
