A Day in the Life of a Teacherby Heather Adamson
This book follows an elementary school teacher through the work day, and describes the occupation and what the job requires.
Children's LiteratureYoung readers can learn all about a typical teacher, Mrs. Chan, and how she spends her day. This book is part of the "First Facts, Community Helpers at Work Series." The day's activities are presented in question and answer format. For example, the question "Where do teachers eat lunch?" is followed by a photograph of Mrs. Chan eating lunch in the cafeteria with a fellow teacher, and the accompanying text explains the picture. A clock appears with each picture, so the readers can track the time of the activities. Fun facts are also included such as how many school days there are and why teachers are given apples. The end material of the book includes a glossary, book references and an Internet address. The book answers most young people's questions about what a teacher does, and so it is a valuable tool to satisfy the curiosity of children. The photographs and text of the book blend beautifully together, and the large type face will help children read by themselves. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
