Get a Job at the Grocery Store

In Get a Job at the Grocery Store, fictional character Jeremiah Oliver Baumgartner (Job, for short) introduces readers to a wide variety of opportunities found through his adventures and misadventures at a grocery store. Back matter includes creative writing prompts and activities. The Get a Job series visits places most elementary and middle-school readers are familiar with—and might even take for granted—and presents them in a new, unexpected light.

This series injects excitement into everyday destinations and proves how some of the most varied and challenging jobs can be found in your own backyard. In each book, Job sets off a chain of events that takes him through different locations around his town and introduces him to the people who keep familiar workplaces running smoothly. Readers can choose a single title of interest, or schools can use the entire series as part of a robust career education curriculum. Join Job in the Get a Job series as he learns about the following places: Airport, Construction Site, Grocery Store, Hospital, Landfill, and Shopping Mall.
