Animal Jobs by Motomitsu Maehara

What do you want to be when you grow up? The world of work might seem dull, but not when you meet these charming career-minded creatures. Ranging from a bat photographer to an elephant conductor, a snake mathematician to a beaver architect, these professional animals work hard and play hard too. The bright and engaging board book is full of imaginative collages of animals. It's the perfect way for young children to learn about the jobs that people do and to learn more about animals, the characteristics that make them unique and perfectly suited to their habitats. Each illustration is embossed to give the animals a tactile finish.
