Sally, the curious and fun-loving black Labrador retriever, wants a job—but what will she be?

Everybody in Sally's family has a job to do. Sally thinks it's a good idea if she gets one, too—but there are so many options to choose from! She likes digging in the yard—she could be an archeologist! She likes playing ball—she could be a baseball player! Sally imagines herself in all sorts of jobs in this charming tale.

Acclaimed artist and author Stephen Huneck uses his trademark woodcut illustrations to bring to life a variety of careers that children might someday pursue. Sally's clever, simply relayed ideas authentically capture the imagination and thought process of preschool children.
