Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Dennette Michaels
This handbook provides a useable checklist for answering the crucial question: "What do I want to be?"-and it connects this question to "Who am I?" The exercises are based on the premise that if you "Wait until you're in college to start figuring out what you want to do"-you may miss out on a meaningful education, satisfying work, and the rewards of a focused and well-planned career." The section "Get Some Direction" helps the reader find their personal skill set and then, using that information, to think through 15 careers where talking skillfully is a prerequisite. The value of book learning-a liberal education-is not downplayed; it's just put into context in the world of work.
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
