Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Each of these very basic introductions contains full- and double-page, color photos that show people of different ethnic backgrounds demonstrating aspects of their work. One or two short sentences in large, bold print against a white background bordered in black are superimposed on the pictures, making the words stand out. Nonreaders can learn something about each occupation from the photos themselves. Dee Ready's Librarians (1998), Tracey Boraas's Auto Mechanics (1999), and Tami Deedrick's Zoo Keepers (1998, all Bridgestone) include more detailed text, a glossary, additional reading, and Web sites.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
