An alphabet of possibilities for every little girl—fun, unusual, and a bit quirky!

Some jobs immediately sound fun—Candy Maker anyone?! And some jobs sound exciting—Oceanographer, Sportscaster, Aerialist! And some jobs—Kite Designer, Wind Farmer, Party Planner—sound so wonderful it’s hard to believe that they exist! Babies and toddlers will follow along with this ABC as it explores some of the amazing, and often unusual, jobs that people do. Each fun letter is complemented by an illustration of a girl filled with delight and wonder as she shows us how we can be, quite literally, anything we want to be.

Farida Zaman has a passion for art and design and in her 20 years as a freelance illustrator she has worked in Europe, North America, and the Middle East with clients across the world. Farida is married and lives in Toronto where she has her friends, family, and art studio.
