School Library Journal

Gr 3-5

Descriptive, colorful, and current, this series will spark the interest of elementary readers just beginning their occupation awareness. Highlighting adventurous as well as routine aspects, each title also integrates the latest technology used on the job, basic vocabulary (in boldface), "Is this career right for you?" questions, and brief "real person" interviews. Students will enjoy the plentiful and sharp photos, such as those of Yao Ming and Michael Phelps in Sports Therapist, wild weather in Meteorologist, and adorable animals in Veterinarian . A "Fact File" for salary, outlook, and training information gives a helpful "quick look" at each field.
