What do you want to be when you grow up? People work in various jobs. Very often, clothes fit the job. The right shoes, for example, can make a job easier or safer. A nurse wouldn’t wear construction boots, and a construction worker wouldn’t wear ballet slippers. There is the right shoe for every job. Steve Swinburne explores various occupations through a simple, lively text and bright, colorful photographs. The book includes a guessing game that invites young readers to guess which shoe matches which job. This Library Media Connection Editor’s Choice book offers a unique way of asking children what they want to be when they grow up.
This board book engages the preliterate audience in a guessing game—to match the shoe to the job. Through simple, lively text, and bright, colorful photographs, various occupations reveal that there is a right shoe for every job.
“The text is rhythmic and will read aloud well.” –Kirkus Reviews“Reminiscent of Margaret Miller’s Whose Shoe? (1991), a staple of story programs for many years.” –Booklist“‘Teachers will find this a good tool to use with a unit on community workers. It gives young students a new look at people in their community from a different perspective.” –Library Media Connection
