In this fictional auto-biography, the boy describes what he was like when he was 5. He tells the reader what he wanted to be, what his favorite dinosaur was, and who his best friend was. But then he turned 6, and everything changed. He was no longer wanting to be a cowboy astronaut, but instead he wanted to be a major league baseball player or a scuba diver. His favorite dinosaur changed from a pterodactyl to a T- Rex. Everything that he had wanted when he was 5, he wanted something different. The only thing that hadn't changed was his best friend.

I love that the pictures of this book express what Jeremy is saying. The pictures in this book could tell the entire story without the words. I feel the wording in this book is similar to the way a six year old would speak. I particularly liked the part where Jeremy was talking about his favorite hiding spot and instead of describing where it is he shows where it is.
