Ages 1^-4. As in MacKinnon's What Size? (1995), this concept book uses brightly colored photographs of children at play with toys and everyday objects. This time, each child is pretending to be an adult at work: fireman, chef, astronaut, musician, farmer, doctor, clown, and, finally, parent. Each left-hand page shows a child playing dress-up with appropriate clothes and tools; on the opposite page are individual objects associated with the occupation. For example, Lara asks her teddy bear where it hurts as she wraps gauze bandages around him. What is she? The answer, "Doctor," is on the opposite page, which shows a toy stethoscope, scissors, syringe, case, and bandage, each one labeled in large, clear type. There may be some confusion between the real tool and the toy version, but kids will enjoy a book that shows adult roles they can act out in their games. Hazel Rochman
