Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Career Exploration" series introduces a particular career, provides information about personal and educational requirements, what daily work the career entails, the salary, how to prepare in high school and with higher education for this career, and the market outlook and possible future related to this job. The concise text opens with a Fast Facts section, includes a skills checklist, and in business-like prose, details aspects of the job. Pictures show occasional multicultural faces but the overwhelming number of patients, technicians and dentists pictured are white, giving the impression that few people of color seek or are in this profession. Picture captions provide plenty of information for browsers, however, and the text is information-laden. Endmatter includes vocabulary, recent career resources, addresses, Internet sites and an index. 2001, Capstone, $21.26. Ages 10 to 14. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
