Part of the Seedlings series
Hello, bus drivers and mechanics. Hello, doctors and librarians. Hello, … fun! The popular Seedlings series now offers introductions to 10 more community helpers. Written in a friendly voice, filled with dynamic photos, and featuring text crafted for the youngest of readers, these titles touch upon occupational skills and tools and the ways in which certain professions help other members of our communities. Each title closes with a labeled-image guide for further review. As introductions to informational text, these titles plant the seeds of knowledge!
In a continuation of their previous series, these books provide basic information about 10 common careers: engineer, mail carrier, librarian, mechanic, police officer, bus driver, coach, firefighter, doctor, and garbage collector. Each book is divided into chapters that don’t exceed four pages, with one or two simple sentences bordered by full-color photographs that complement the text. Each entry includes a visual glossary of common tools utilized in each career (hardhats and computers for engineers; scanners, carts, and desks for librarians). VERDICT A solid addition to early learning libraries and small- to medium-sized public library collections.
