Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—These titles offer clear, solid information in a large font. "Animators are artists who work to make cartoons appear to be alive"; "Video game developers make video games and the machines that play the games." The books not only explain the careers but also bring to light how people working in these areas benefit the world. For example, environmental engineers are developing new ways to treat water and waste. "On the Job" sections introduce actual professionals. In Marine Biologist, Liz Brooks explains how she does research to help set rules for the fishing trade. A "Career Fact File" in the back matter includes the outlook, earnings, and education needed for the particular profession. These short books are packed with relevant, current material.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
