Grade 5-9Reeves begins each well-organized book by asking readers to think about what they like to do and their goals, and to respond to questions to determine their interest areas. Through simple calculations, they can then deduce where their skills and interests intersect within these fields. The author follows these sections with an examination of some of the different opportunities available, providing a list of the skills needed for each job, a description of the position, and a profile of someone in the profession. Each job description is dotted with numerous Web sites, professional associations, and resources, and includes practical ways to learn more about the career. The technique of engaging students in a step-by-step manner makes these titles good how-tos for finding an appropriate occupation. Each volume concludes with a chapter that offers additional suggestions, activities, and a list of further reading for positions that dont require a college education. The authors tone is chatty and informal but its occasionally condescending in Sports. The books are illustrated with black-and-white drawings and photographs of average quality and feature a diverse group of individuals. Students will find these books informative, fun, and a comfortable and interactive way to approach career exploration.Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreeboro
