When Violet visits her mom’s office on Take Your Child to Work Day (or snow days, or school holidays, or babysitter-is-sick days), she is very helpful. She answers the phone (once she stops accidentally hanging up on people!), makes business cards (after adding a snazzy personal touch!), learns how to use the paper shredder (and discovers how to make her very own confetti!), and gives the boss pointers on his presentation. With a little mayhem — and a lot of joy — Violet makes her mark on the office!
Coworkers beware — Violet’s here to “help” at the office in this lively picture book that puts a fun-loving spin on the grown-up work world. With whimsical text and effervescent illustrations, this is a celebration of an exuberant girl, a hard-working mom, and a welcoming office that knows the Violets of today become the innovators of tomorrow!
"[Violet is] literally bounding with energy and eagerness to help (except when she’s napping during a boring conference call, along with all the adults), and she’s so utterly confident that even the boss ends up taking her advice on how to give an effective presentation. Although adults may identify more closely with Violet’s flummoxed mother, those still too young for the labor force should get a kick out of seeing how easy it is to discombobulate the button-down mind." — Publishers Weekly
