This board book is organized similarly to its companion ABC What Can She Be? by author Sugar Snap Studio and author/illustrator Jessie Ford. On each page there is an alphabet letter, career name and description, and illustration of a boy in his professional environment. Four job titles in this book are the same job titles that are in the girl’s book however twenty two titles are not commonly seen and are interesting to read about. For example, karate instructor, urban planner and xenobiologist. Professions not typically associated with males are depicted i.e. ballet dancer, yoga instructor, and nurse. Vocations typically associated with males are also shown i.e. carpenter, police officer and welder. While the book focuses on boys in these fields of course females are competently performing these same jobs in society also. Illustrations are inviting and appropriate for this age range.
