Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This book is about choices, and looking ahead. Students can wait until college, or they can start investigating career options while in elementary or high school. A questionnaire provides help in pinpointing areas of interest. The book provides a listing of various occupations that indicate skill sets required and a brief description of that job. Actor is first, and a lot of information is provided about children's theaters and how to get involved right now. The Check It Out section provides resources for additional information. The real special interest of the book is specific information about a real actor, detailing her career and how she turned her childhood interest in being a FBI agent into being a part time actress. The range of careers studied is impressive; including architect, floral designer, animator, graphic designer, and of course artist. A concluding component supplies additional suggestions, such as surfing the net for addition resources and participation in a shadow-professional day. This is a well-rounded publication that presents a realistic picture, with the bonus being real people's stories.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Both books begin with the same test to help readers determine their individual abilities and interests. With the results as a catalyst, they can then explore the wide array of careers that are examined in detail. In Art, jobs such as actor, animator, chef, and photojournalist are included. Communications careers range from hotel manager to publicist to broadcaster. Each entry defines the position, gives suggestions for "trying it on" through activities or places to visit, and describes it from the perspective of someone working in the field. Relevant books, CD-ROMs, magazines, Web sites, and organizations to contact are given where appropriate. Both books have lists of additional career opportunities with practical advice on how to investigate them and suggestions for further reading. Reeves's writing is upbeat, easy to read, and filled with pertinent information. The format is appealing and in the few fill-in-the-blanks sections, readers are reminded that they should use a separate piece of paper. Black-and-white photographs and pencil drawings illustrate the books. Career Discovery Encyclopedia (Ferguson, 1997) and Maria Gisler's Art (VGM, 1998) are good choices, but these titles are outstanding.-Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, AZ
Kirkus Reviews
The lack of money in the arts makes finding full-time art-related work tough; this book helps readers apply their skills to occupations that really exist by examining 15 different jobs in detail, among them, museum curator, chef, fashion designer, and industrial designer. The book opens with a lengthy 84-question quiz intended to help readers ascertain their field of interest. Each career entry contains interviews with people working in the field along with addresses. Readers are encouraged to go to the library and the Internet to continue their research, and there are also tips on setting up informational interviews with people working in artistic fields. A helpful browsing tool for students who want to think ahead to their post-school years. (Nonfiction. 12-16)
