A lively story in verse that follows a young boy and his classmates as they try out a variety of occupations. Each page shows children enjoying a different job at their own level, in the context of a school or playground setting. As they work through the alphabet, children see what it is like to be a carpenter, a firefighter, an illustrator, an opera singer, a trucker and more. Written in Nikola-Lisa's signature rhythmic style and illustrated with Galindo's imaginative pictures, this playful story is just right for any child ... and his or her favourite teacher!
