Sally, the dog, spends a day imagining what it would be like if she gets a job. She thinks about many different jobs she could possibly have including archaeologist and life guard. In the end she decides that taking care of her human family is the job she was meant to do.

This book is a wonderful introduction to careers for children. There are many possibilities presented here, even ones that children might not think about right away such as a paleontologist and a zoo keeper. The story is written from the dog's perspective including how she would clean dishes (with her tongue) which makes it more quirky. Children would also find it very funny seeing a dog even think about trying to do some of these human jobs.

The illustrations are colorful woodcut prints.
