Children's LiteratureThis is a book designed to be read by children, to make simple crafts which are "tools of the trade" of a variety of community workers. Other featured helpers include a doctor, nurse, and dentist, construction worker, banker, plumber, and floristthe list goes on. And each craft represents something specific to the trade: a bookmark, a jackhammer, a tooth, and even handcuffs. The crafts are made of things commonly found in the home, including a number of recycled materials. The illustrations are attractive and detail each step of preparation. A sentence explaining the career is offered. The book would certainly be useful for librarians and teachers, and scout leaders, too. The vocabulary is not simple enough for primary grades, though the activities certainly are. This is part of a series called "Learning Is Fun," which also focuses on crafts that support a curriculum for early learners. 2006, Millbrook Press/Lerner Publishing Group, Ages 3 to 8.
