Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of has won the Children’s Book 2019 Creative Play Award!

We’re thrilled to announce that Incredible Jobs You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of, by Natalie Labarre has won 2019 Creative Play Award in the Children’s Book category!

Now in their twelfth year, the awards are run by Creative Steps magazine to recognise the best creative play products and resources. Entries are independently tested by parents, early years professionals and teachers – so we’re delighted that Natalie’s book has been judged as a winner in the Children’s Book category.

The judges said, ‘A wider age range of children enjoyed looking through this book, stimulating conversation, discussion and ideas used in play afterwards. A very much talked about book.’

Incredible Jobs is a fantastic non-fiction picture book debut about all sorts of jobs – from the strange to the downright bizarre! Do you know what you want to do when you grow up? Why not work as a babysitter . . . for sloths? Or become a farmer . . . of corpses? You might even grow up to be someone who gets paid to actually sleep on the job! From taste testers to dinosaur dusters, there are all kinds of incredible jobs that you’ve probably never heard of . . . and one of them might be just right for you!

Take a look inside the book below:

The winners will be featured in the Winter issue of Creative Steps magazine, publishing on 1st December. You can find out more about the awards, and view the full list of winners, here.

Congratulations Natalie!
