Description

Do you love the outdoors and dream of working outside when you grow up? If the answer is yes, then this book is for you!

In this entertaining and informative book, children who love the great outdoors can find out all about the future careers they can choose from. 
 
From a travel writer to a marine biologist, a surf instructor to a firefighter, a construction manager to palaeontologist, this book takes you through a day in the life of 25 outdoor workers, showing you how each job unfolds on a typical working day. You’ll learn what it takes to get the job, what duties and tasks are involved, and discover a world of opportunities. Turn the pages and find out the best part of a geologist's day and what really bugs a ski instructor… HINT: it involves freezing cold snow!
 
With a variety of careers covered, from jobs on construction sites, cliff-faces, icy oceans and many more, this book is sure to inspire children’s ambitions and get them excited for their futures. Aimed at outdoorsy readers aged 7 and older the illustrated narrative approach tells the story of each career and helps introduce children to the world of work in a playful, engaging way.
 
When they’ve finished reading, children will have gained an overview of each of the featured jobs and will have discovered that you can turn a passion, an interest or a hobby into a rewarding career.

If readers want to know more about the opportunities ahead they can check out That's a Job? I Like Sport, or That's a Job? I Like Animals and discover even more of the world's coolest jobs.
