A nurse wouldn't wear construction boots, and a construction worker wouldn't wear ballet slippers. There is the right shoe for every job. Steve Swinburne explores various occupations through a simple, lively text and bright, colorful photographs. The book includes a guessing game that invites young readers to guess which shoe matches which job.
