Overview

Unavailable for almost 20 years, a little-known Dr. Seuss book about careers gets a fresh new look!

Wildly imaginative and told in rollicking rhyme, this beginning reader about careers could ONLY have been written by Dr. Seuss! Featuring a mix of real jobs (like firefighter, doctor, teacher, farmer, etc.) and Seussian ones (including perfume smeller, fishbone boner, bass-drum banger, and roller coaster owner), it will incite plenty of giggles while planting the seed of a serious idea: that everyone needs to do something in life, and there are LOTS of choices! Fully illustrated with charming new art (featuring a multicultural cast in nontraditional gender roles), this is a great choice for home and classroom use!

Launched in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat and written specifically for emergent readers, Beginner Books combine an exacting blend of simple words and fun pictures that encourage children to read--all by themselves.
