Every little one dreams of what they will be when they are big… a fire fighter, a police officer, a race car driver? Our world is full of many interesting jobs. It is also important that we teach our children to value and appreciate all of them and understand how they contribute to the community. This My Busy Bots bag takes a look at some key roles and helps them discover a bit more about them.
