Our Jobs book cover

Our Jobs

Farmers. A potter. A basket-weaver. A wood-carver. Fifteen pictures show people busy at familiar tasks. And at the end, a girl reading.

We still have a shortage of very easy books, for children first learning to read. Children reading this book can often guess the words, then use their knowledge of the letters to confirm or change their guess.
