Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook –ADVISABLE

Heling, Kathryn and Hembrook, Deborah and Illustrated by Davies, Andy Robert Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do 36 pgs. Charlesbridge, 2012. $10.91  (Rating: G)
The title says it all. A cute simple clothesline with an outfit attached, accessories on the ground, and a simple short verse with hints. The next pages reveal the career person at work. Examples are cook and farmer. Simple bright and colorful.
I really liked that they didn't use traditional gender stereotypes. It was clear and to the point. Children will love the guessing game part, perfect for a unit on jobs!
