Gr 1–3—This series focuses on jobs children can have now as opposed to when they grow up. Each title begins with a child who wants something-a new skateboard, MP3 player, etc.-and finds a way to earn the money to buy it. The short, interesting texts cover figuring costs, finding a customer base, and advertising. They also deal with making eco-friendly choices, skills needed and correcting mistakes, and conclude with a balance sheet of income and expenditures. The multicultural characters and cartoonlike illustrations are done in bold, fun colors.
