School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 6-9 Each of these accessible books explores 12 jobs in separate chapters. Animal covers veterinary technician, pet shop worker, wildlife control specialist, and farmer while People discusses professions such as plumber, construction worker, auto mechanic, and electrician among others. Every occupation includes a description and information on training, outlook, and lists of additional sources. The print is large and the glossy color photos show subjects in a variety of real-life activities. Although the pictures are dominated by Caucasians, there is an attempt to show females in nontraditional jobs. Not all libraries need circulating career material for this age group but those that do will find these overviews clearly written. -Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
