Review: Different kinds of occupations require different types of shoes. For example, while construction workers need sturdy boots to protect their feet from injuries, mail carriers prefer comfortable walking shoes and office workers may prioritize fashion and style. With photographs that prompt children to guess which shoes belong with which occupation, this entertaining book encourages children to think about job requirements and future career possibilities.
