Introduces the career of the construction carpenter by providing information about educational requirements, duties, workplace, salary, employment outlook, and possible future positions.
Children's LiteratureImmediately following the table of contents, a two-page spread entitled "Fast Facts" recaps the featured job. Information includes a salary range (figures are based on information from the late 1990s), educational requirements, certification or licensing, skills, job outlook and more. The text, while factually correct is pretty pedestrian. The sentence structure does not vary much and often begins with the job title. The pictures are frequently more interesting, as is the occasional comparative information between the United States and Canada in the career field. There is a mini glossary, a bibliography, lists of organizations and Internet sites and an index. Useful for elementary school and public libraries that need career information. 2000, Capstone, $21.26. Ages 8 to 10. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
