What do the grown-ups do?

A series of books to teach children about different jobs.

"May all of children's literature begin to engage students as McLellan's books do. If this is a new trend in children's books, teachers across the US would be so grateful.”

Marlene Moyer, 5th & 6th Grade teacher, Nevada, USA.

About the books

The award-winning What do the grown-ups do? series is designed to educate children aged five to ten years on the world of work. In each book, three children meet with different workers who explain their jobs.  As the books are written through the eyes of the children, the tone is kept chatty and light-hearted, making the books ideal for school topics as well as bedtime stories.


“What makes these books noteworthy are the practical details from the mouths of the real workers, which fascinate rather than bore.  It’s eye-opening stuff.”
Teach Primary magazine.
