Young children love to imagine what they might be when they grow up. This book aims to help them to do that using photographs of children dressed in specially commissioned outfits to help children visualize themselves in a job and encourage them to role play. The text provides information about the work and the equipment used. The photographs also capture the excitement, dangers and rewards of each job and features real-life situations. More than 25 jobs are featured. An "Amazing Facts" section reveals little-known information.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-6. With big color photographs of smiling children dressed up as firefighter, ballet dancer, surgeon, lawyer, mail carrier, pilot, and many other kinds of workers, this large-size volume is a cheerful introduction to the world of work. Each page is about one trade or profession: a portrait of a child is the focus, and then there are facts about tools, equipment, and the workplace, with small, captioned pictures of adults on the job. The models are posed and self-consciously cute, but the cast is multicultural, the career choices are non-sexist (there's a waiter and a waitress), and girls and boys trying out various adult roles will find facts and images here to help them choose. Hazel Rochman
