When I Grow Up by Tad Carpenter


When I Grow Up by Tad Carpenter

All kids dream about what they'll be when they grow up - and this fun book, with its guessing game format, introduces toddlers to different professions. By listening to the clues in the text and looking closely at the illustrations, children try to figure out whether the person hidden under the flap is a doctor, lawyer, teacher, fireman, cop, or vet. A final Spread shows everyone together!
