Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
While the concept of presenting the librarian as a possible career is cause for delight, this book is not an advocate for librarians and does the profession a disservice. According to the glossary in this book, a librarian is: "A person who works in a library." While that may be true for a one-person library it is certainly not the case anywhere else, any more than the fact that any person who works in a hospital is a doctor. If this is true, the janitor who mops the library floor is a librarian. This book is an insult to those of us in the profession. The very last page states that it looks like fun to be a librarian, but today's librarian does not do at least 50% of what this book says librarians do! The author should have researched a real library and reported what librarians really do if this series, "People in my Community," is meant to encourage readers to consider certain occupations. Can this book be useful? Maybe—if the readers are young enough and have never met a librarian, or understand this is narrow-minded publishing. Perhaps this may become a collector's item due to its stereotyping and erroneous content. Hopefully, this book will never make it to a library shelf. 2002, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 8.
— Elizabeth Young
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In these simple books, text and photos are presented in nine spreads. One or two sentences in large font face a full-page, full-color picture on the right. The books and photos focus on what a child might see professionals do on a daily basis. Some words are presented in bold and have an arrow pointing to the object in the photo, such as X-ray pictures or a stethoscope, to assist in understanding. Each book has a glossary, but not all bolded words are listed in it, and not all words in the glossary appear in bold in the text. All photographs of librarians are women and all are referred to as "she." Similar to other career books for this age group, these are additional purchases for classrooms or school libraries looking for more books on community helpers.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
