Week 20 PBID Question

Last week it was FREEZING cold here in Wisconsin, so our picture was a young girl and her father all bundled up to keep warm on a winter day. This week continues the theme of cold weather, only this girl and her grandmother stayed inside during the cold.

The author of the book that this image comes from has won many awards. She has won a Newbery Honor four times, a Caldecott Honor for the book that this image is from, and is the current National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.

This girl misses Mama, but Grandma says, Your mama's gonna be coming on home soon. Mama moved to Chicago for a job. What is the job Mama says she will be doing while she is gone?
