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.
