It’s high time the age-old question of what you want to be when you grow up has a creative answer. Jason Squirrel has grown tired of lugging bags of nuts everyday. If only there were a better way... Jason turns to Stan the Banking Turtle who warns him that his plan is too risky. Still, Jason keeps at it, and learns all there is to know about financing, marketing, staffing, and overcoming the challenges of starting a business, including how it feels to have a lack of support and encouragement from his forest friends. Sarah Rabbit, who acts as an angel investor, leads the way, Frog helps with an exit strategy and before long, Jason is able to hire a team of raccoons to handle the nut gathering and nut hauling. He’s in business! Proving that entrepreneurs need to be dogged and pragmatic, with a sense of adventure, this educational reader wins big points for introducing children to the possibility of starting, running, and owning their own business.
