School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-These welcome additions to career collections feature a combination of appealing, full-color photographs and accurate, descriptive prose. The first title shows the diversity of the lives of modern farmers. "What will grow on your farm? Crunchy carrots? Juicy berries? Tall golden fields of wheat and corn? Will you raise chickens for their eggs? Cows for their sweet, creamy milk?" Children, adults, and families from many ethnic groups are portrayed doing the real, seven-days-a-week work of farming. Organized according to the seasons, the book touches on spring field preparation and planting; summer crop growth and dangers; fall harvests of apples, grain, and other crops; and winter chores. Sections depicting "Farmers in Time" and "A Farmer's Clothing and Equipment" are appended. In the second title, children are invited to imagine: "If you were a musician, you'd perform on a stage. Your fingers would fly as music filled the air." From a marching band to a symphony orchestra to steel drums, the wild diversity of music is explored. Popular singer-songwriter Shania Twain commands a full-page illustration as does a lively rock group. "Musicians in Time" and "A Musician's Tools" are included. Balanced and lively looks at their subjects.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
