Ages birth to 6 years. From an early age, children learn about careers. They watch people working everywhere and playtime often involves dressing up and acting out imagined jobs. This ABC book helps introduce the array of career possibilities and expands a young reader's vocabulary. A selection of jobs -- two for each letter of the alphabet -- are presented in whimsical sketches of children at work. From astronaut to zoologist, short verses hint at a job description in a rhyming scheme that children will love to repeat. While the focus of a favourite job will change dozens of times as a child grows, one day, one of the possibilities will be reality. Ideal for the parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or educator with career-minded children.
Zora and David Aiken have collaborated on six books with boating and outdoor themes. They live on a sailboat and meander along coastal and inland waterways gathering material for their work. This is their second children's book.
