Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
One of the questions most commonly asked of our children is "What do you want to be when you grow up?" This book, one of six of the "Career Ideas" series, focuses on helping kids answer that question by detailing a sampling of employment opportunities available for kids who enjoy sports. The idea is to get kids started on thinking about what they might like to do when they grow up. It also offers many alternatives to those who may not be athletically gifted but who enjoy sports and would like to be involved in some way. It's not a book about sports and playing sports but rather it is a guidebook full of tips, testimonials and resources intended to introduce, inform, encourage and engage those who would like to become a part of the ever-expanding sports industry. Designed for teens and pre-teens, this is a well-rounded, valuable guide.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9Reeves begins each well-organized book by asking readers to think about what they like to do and their goals, and to respond to questions to determine their interest areas. Through simple calculations, they can then deduce where their skills and interests intersect within these fields. The author follows these sections with an examination of some of the different opportunities available, providing a list of the skills needed for each job, a description of the position, and a profile of someone in the profession. Each job description is dotted with numerous Web sites, professional associations, and resources, and includes practical ways to learn more about the career. The technique of engaging students in a step-by-step manner makes these titles good how-tos for finding an appropriate occupation. Each volume concludes with a chapter that offers additional suggestions, activities, and a list of further reading for positions that dont require a college education. The authors tone is chatty and informal but its occasionally condescending in Sports. The books are illustrated with black-and-white drawings and photographs of average quality and feature a diverse group of individuals. Students will find these books informative, fun, and a comfortable and interactive way to approach career exploration.Janice C.
