Kingfisher Readers L1: Jobs People Do by Thea Feldman Come along on a tour of all the interesting things people do as a job. From the farm to the city, and from the office to the stage, this book explores both the familiar jobs kids see every day like teachers and grocers, as well as more unusual jobs like astronaut and dancer. New words are introduced throughout the text with subtle highlighting—police officer, vet, mail carrier—and a glossary at the back gives the definition. The beautiful photography and the carefully constructed text work together to help new readers decode the amazing information.
