The Lovereading4Kids comment

Every day children watch parents head out of the door for the day to go to work. This eye-catching book shows them just what the grown-ups might be doing, illustrating fourteen different workplaces across stylish expansive pages. It starts with the familiar – what grown-ups do at school – then goes on to look at construction sites, hospitals, the farm, shops and more. There’s lots to look at in every spread and each of the grow-ups readers meet are then illustrated on the following page, with short sentences to explain what they do. A handsome book that provides lots of information and lots for children to talk about. ~ Andrea Reece
