What's Job Wanted About

Publisher Summary

A plucky farm dog will do anything to get a job–even be a cow! When a farmer tells a dog that “dogs just eat and don’t give anything back,” the dog is disappointed, but not discouraged. He’ll try being a cow, a horse, and a chicken before he’s done. As the farmer learns the value of a good dog, children will laugh as the dog finds his rightful place on the farm. Teresa Batemen’s endearing story celebrates persistence, ingenuity, and the fact that everybody can make a contribution. Award-winning artist Chris Sheban’s illustrations are filled with warmth and humor. Kids and parents will love this terrific read aloud with a subtle message about never giving up. Nominated for The Washington Children’s Choice Award, The New York State Charlotte Award, the Young Hoosier Book Award, and the Virginia Readers’ Choice Award.
