This brief, straightforward book tells—and shows—kids all that lumberjacks do. When they’re done, readers will know why this fits into the Dangerous Jobs series. With important words in bold, the text explains in simple terms how loggers (the preferred name) climb trees, attach cables, use chain saws, load trucks, and work in sawmills. Besides the obvious, information about what makes the job dangerous (e.g., working in remote areas far from medical care) and a few statistics about injuries are given (In 2010, nearly 60 lumberjacks died on the job). The photographs sometimes seem to feature loggers photoshopped against backgrounds, and the pictures are not always of the best quality. Still, this is a profession that gets little attention, and it’s one that will interest kids. Grades 3-5. --Ilene Cooper
