This week’s book review is for Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of by Natalie Labarre. It was published by Nosy Crow on 3rd October and it can be purchased on Amazon*.
Do you know what you want to do when you grow up? Why not work as a babysitter . . . for sloths? Or become a farmer . . . of corpses? You might even grow up to be someone who gets paid to actually sleep on the job! From taste testers to dinosaur dusters, there are all kinds of incredible jobs that you’ve probably never heard of . . . and one of them might be just right for you!
Erin is now at an age where she questions everything. She asks what people are doing in the street, she asks about what me and her Dad do for work and she asks what other people do as well. It’s important to let her know that there are so many possibilities when it comes to jobs and nothing should feel impossible.
Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of is a book full of exactly that, loads of jobs you may not have considered or even heard of before. I’m 33 and there were so many jobs in this book that I hadn’t even heard of before so it was great to discover them myself.
Not only is Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of full of so much fun information but the illustrations are just fantastic. Each image to go with each job really helps to explain what someone might do in that position and I think the imagery will really help younger children to realise what those jobs are.
it’s easy for children, for anyone really, to think that they have to do something that is expected of them. Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of really helps to ignite children’s imaginations and to realise that there is more to the working world than what might be considered a ‘regular’ job.
