School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-Clearly and concisely written in simple sentences, these titles introduce children to the work of people they may encounter in their daily lives. New, less fluent readers will be able to focus on content without struggling to read the texts. Average-quality, full-color photographs show ethnically diverse community helpers performing their duties. In Child Care Workers, the pictures are less obviously posed than those in Emergency Medical Technicians. Highlighted words in the text are defined at the bottom of the page. These are solid introductions to their topics that could be useful as read-alouds for preschoolers who prefer nonfiction or in study units. They are more general than titles in the "Kids' Career Library" series (Rosen), which fictionalize a typical day in the life of the workers.-Rita Hunt Smith, Hershey Public Library, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
