Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Whose Is It?" series presents seven community jobs by looking at the hats worn by a variety of workers, including a firefighter, a beekeeper, a football player, a chef, and a construction worker. The text asks, "Whose hat is this," and describes each with a pithy adjective (hard and yellow, tall and clean, warm and snug). The page turn produces the hat and worker with several sentences describing what he or she does. The text concludes with the child's own winter hat. In addition, a boxed fun fact provides further information. The series makes good efforts not to stereotype work by sex or race. Nevertheless, the digitally created illustrations, while adequate, do not always do a good job of presenting recognizable detail on many of the illustrations. The "before" pictures are outtakes of the following picture with some murky, indecipherable results. The Q&A format seems aimed at young readers, while challenging vocabulary and information load is more suitable for competent second grade readers, making this series useable for a wide audience in the early elementary grades. The back matter includes an index of occupations, a short glossary, an "All About…" section providing more information, and a mini-review quiz. 2006, Picture Window Books/Capstone Press, Ages 3 to 8.
