Editorial Reviews

VOYA, February 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 6) - Pam Carlson
Character can be defined as “who you are even when no one else is around.” The career one chooses may provide unexpected challenges in the areas of integrity and trustworthiness, respect and compassion, justice and fairness, responsibility, courage, self-discipline and diligence, and citizenship. Careers with Character devotes one chapter in each title to each of those areas while presenting comprehensive information on job requirements, career opportunities, and a general introduction on character questions and career choices. Personal narratives are what differentiate this series from others devoted to careers, making it both more readable and memorable. Open-ended questions following the anecdotes ask the reader what decision they would have made in particular situations. Several sidebars with quotes, factoids, and lists, such as “Excuses We Make for Unethical Behavior,” break up the text. Both color and black-and-white photos are scattered throughout. A basic introduction is repeated in each volume and short lists for further reading, related websites, glossary, and index are included. Several highly visible and influential careers are embodied in the series including politician, social worker, homeland security officer, and clergy. There were a few typos: For example, Childcare Worker states that 3.3 cases of child abuse are reported each year. The actual number is 3.3 million. Despite such glitches, this is a unique and beneficial resource for young adults making decisions about their futures, as well as for high school or even college counselors to use with students. It is a reminder that careers are more than salary and perks; they might possibly be a means of influencing the world. (Careers with Character) Reviewer: Pam Carlson; Ages 15 to 18.
Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Clergy help people in all walks of life and are a very important part of the church. There are requirements and education that is needed to be a member of the clergy. For example, most Protestant clergy have a Master’s degree and Catholic clergy are required to study theology for four years beyond their bachelor’s degree. But clergy need more than education. They have to be people who have integrity, compassion, are trustworthy, respectful, courageous, diligent, self-disciplined, fair, and uphold justice. For instance, a member of the clergy assists people in the church and needs to be a person of integrity and trust. If someone in the church has a problem and confides in the clergy, that person needs to know that what was discussed will not be repeated to anyone else, but will be kept in confidence. They need to know they can trust the clergy. A member of the clergy has to have the integrity and a good reputation in order to lead the people of the church in the right way. Furthermore, courage is also needed because many times clergy make decisions that may not be popular, but are right according to the standards they teach. This informative book explains each character trait needed to help the reader to understand more about clergy and the responsibilities that come with this position. In addition, there are suggestions for further reading as well as websites for more information included in the back of the book. This book is part of the “Careers with Characters” series. Anyone thinking of becoming part of the clergy would be interested in reading this well-written book. Reviewer: Cathi I. White; Ages 12 up.
