K-Gr 2—Cashiers, counselors, delivery drivers, and EMTs, and the importance and community impact of each role, are introduced in this series. Readers will recognize a lot of different examples of how they encounter these essential workers in real life: while grocery shopping, waiting for a delivery, or going to their counselor for help. The book about counselors helps normalize a child's experience visiting with a counselor in a variety of situations—for example, after having a disagreement with a peer. Each page includes two or three short statements, along with an accompanying image that appropriately complements the text. Notable to this series is its depiction of many different diversity identifiers, including race, culture, ethnicity, and ability. Caregivers may be inspired to point out these everyday heroes to children as they encounter them in daily life. VERDICT A timely addition to any collection, including home libraries.
