I adore Miranda Paul's picture books and this one does not disappoint. Filled with lyrical words and lovely illustrations, this book does a great job of introducing kids to community helpers and different professions. My kids loved the rhyming text and guessing game throughout. The back matter is also well written and engaging and the entire book evokes discussion. This fun and educational book made me happy and judging from my kids' enthusiam, this book made them happy too.
