People at work, doing things that are so essential to us all, are lyrically depicted in Gary Paulsen's spare and elegant verse and Ruth Wright Paulsen's richly textured oil paintings. This talented pair celebrates the work ethic with sensitivity and dignity--and reminds us of the quiet grace inherent in everyday lives. "The soft colors, spare text, and overall design of the book provide a song of praise to the unsung heroes in every child's world and to the simple satisfaction of a job well done."--School Library Journal
