Review: What Do People Do All Day?

What Do People Do All Day is such a cute book we got from Timberdoodle I love that all the characters are animals. It goes through so many different jobs that people would have in your community. There is even a part about what mom’s do; of course if the dad of the house does the majority of the housework you can expand and talk about that or how both mom and dad share the household responsibilities. The book goes through how a house is made and show many people with different jobs come together to build the house. What firefighters and police officers do, how a ship has many different jobs, what all goes into having a train run smoothly. Our daughter was especially happy to see the train portion because Daddy works on a train.


By no means would I use this a single curriculum social studies but it’s a cute book that has a lot to offer when teaching about your community. We read about 2 pages a week so it build suspense with our daughter because she’s so eager to learn more about what the person does at their job. The drawings are great for kiddos and I think that also keeps our daughter engaged while we go over the material and talk about what each person is doing. With books like this I also try and have a side conversation asking about what and how they do things and if she would be interested in learning more or even doing that kind of job in the future.

  1. I love books by Richard Scarry and so do my kids. I think we checked this one out from the library in the past.
