And Read About Amazing Jobs Around the World

What do you want to be when you grow up? A pilot? A nurse? We all hear about normal types of jobs but you’d be surprised what unusual careers there are out there – if you know where to look.

The new Amazing Jobs book is a great way to find out about the most thrilling and interesting jobs around the world.

Did you know for example that policemen in Paris wear roller skates? Or that Australia needs flying doctors to reach people in towns that are hard to get to by road?

This book has loads of fascinating facts and young kids will have fun finding them out because most of them are hidden behind flaps which you have to lift up to reveal. There is also a “Can you find” challenge on each page which makes you look at the pictures more carefully.

There’s so much going on in the colourful illustrations, and these, together with the information, tell you what the jobs are like.

Though this book may be short, each page is packed with details about the jobs, and other interesting aspects, such as that more Bollywood films are made in Bombay than in Hollywood each year!

The book makes you imagine what each role would be like. For me, the most amazing one was a Sherpa, whose job it is to assist climbers up tremendous mountains by carrying their equipment for them and keeping them safe and on route.

It’s definitely a great idea to read this book if you would like an adventurous job when you grow up.
