Career Day is approaching, and Annie can’t wait to show her family what she’s planning to be when she grows up. But, she must keep it a secret until Friday! So curious family members each ask Annie for a clue. Convinced that she’ll be a news reporter like he once was, her grandfather gives her his old camera and notebook to use for her presentation. Her grandmother is sure Annie wants to be a champion baker like her, so she offers a mixing bowl and oven gloves to Annie. Hopeful she’ll become the mountain climber he aspired to be so her father gives Annie an old backpack. Her mother presents Annie with a pair of high-top trainers to pursue her favourite sport at school—basketball.

Grateful for each gift, Annie cleverly finds a way to use them all to create her Career Day costume. When the big day arrives, Annie finally reveals her out-of-this-world dream to everyone.
