School Library Journal - Cool Vocational Careers

These titles lean toward jobs that are physically demanding, artistic, or require more technical skills than most. Practical and informative, these books weave facts about the nature of the work, earnings, and educational requirements into the narrative. Quotes from real people about their career paths accompany discussions on efficiency, work ethic, problem solving, and being a team player. The captioned color photos of diverse workers underscore the type of daily tasks associated with the job, and fact boxes tie to “21st Century Content” or “Life & Career Skills.” “Think About It” offers questions to ask adults about the job or web search ideas. VERDICT Refreshing choices for students who may not be college bound.
