Capstone Press is a publisher of children’s books and digital products.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-9-These titles include facts about the careers, information about day-to-day responsibilities and activities, the abilities and interests needed, educational and training preparation required, and the outlook for the future. Related careers and specialties are mentioned. Average-quality, full-color photos of working men and women of different ages and backgrounds illustrate the volumes. While the content would be suitable for interested elementary students, the format of these books will appeal to older students reading below grade level. Unfortunately, the writing in all three is sometimes choppy, awkward, and dry. Bill Lund's Getting Ready for a Career in Computers (Capstone, 1995) and Betsy Imershein's Auto Mechanic (Messner, 1989; o.p.) cover similar ground for younger students while Lonny D. Garvey's Opportunities in the Machine Trades (VGM, 1994) will appeal to teens. Current information on these professions is needed, but these titles are not the answer.
