“You never know when you might have to go to work at the office.  So be prepared!  Here’s everything you need to know before you go…”  

This is an adorable book about a babysitter calling in sick, and a mother needing to take her little girl to work with her for the day.  The mother is extremely patient, her coworkers extremely understanding, and the little girl wonders how in the world the office ever survived without her!  The illustrations are priceless.  The story is simple and touching.  This book could be used in a unit jobs or on family relationships.
