Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each entry in the "Welcome Books" series pictures in photographs and descriptions an occupation of a family member as seen through the eyes of a child. Books feature a "Contents" page, new word glossary, a selection of trade or series books on the topic, and a Website that lets you take a tour of a cookie factory, and an index. Simple and mundane text, large font, one or two sentences per page, and plenty of white space support the reader and offer basic vocabulary. Here, Frankie who looks to be about a kindergartner and his Grandpa sell cookies, bread, muffins, and decorate a cake. People of various racial or ethnic backgrounds are pictured throughout the series and those in this book are Caucasian. Children may wonder why those working with food don't observe better sanitation techniques but there's enough information here to talk with young children about people who work with their hands making something. And they can read this book on their own. 2002, Children's Press,
