A lot of us spend a long time finding a job that is the perfect one for us, and most of us have tried out more than a few. Today’s story is about a squid who is determined to find the perfect job too.
Sid is a squid with a mission. He wants to be useful and so he travels to the city to find himself the perfect job. David G. Derrick, Jr.’s story has many funny mishaps as Sid tries out careers.
But, even cooking isn’t quite perfect:
Sid is ready to give up, but then he sees a whale struggling in a net.
Sid realizes that he is meant to help with animals and gets a job at the aquarium.
It works out perfectly, and all because he never gave up.
This book would be fun to read to kids when they are learning about community helpers. I am trying to match curriculum with the teachers, so I’ll have to watch for it to come up.
