NSTA Recommends - Judy Kraus, Science Teacher

"Open the door to possibilities by introducing early readers to careers in a variety of fields through the new Heinemann–Raintree "Jobs if You Like…" series. Each text focuses on a concept that generates interest at an early age, such as science or animals. Ten jobs associated with that particular field are featured. Highlighting individual careers within broad areas fosters dreams and provides a glimpse of the future. In Jobs if You Like Animals Charlotte Guillain begins with probing questions. “Do you love animals?" "Are you interested in wild animals?” She sets the stage for career exploration involving an array of critters! Professionals are featured in each occupation, from the vet inspecting the horse’s teeth and the farmer using equipment to milk cows, to the entomologist studying bees and the animal welfare inspector making sure animals are cared for properly. Several jobs featured involved animals working in unique ways. The assistance dog trainer worked to pair an animal with a visually impaired child and the police dog handler raised pups to help them rescue people or even catch a criminal. Each book in this series culminates with the goal of helping the reader choose the right job based on individual interests and skills needed for them. The goal is to think about what each person enjoys doing. A two–page chart follows this career exploration recommendation. It lists each occupation, what essential skills are needed, and a positive comment about each one. For example the riding instructor, “needs to be a good teacher and the best part of the job is working with horses daily!” The photography is abundant and draws the reader into the hands–on work accomplished on a daily basis by amazing individuals." - NSTA Recommends

School Library Journal - Diana Pierce

"Highlighting multiple careers within each title, this series introduces vocations that go beyond the usual professional athlete or coach position, encouraging students to consider becoming occupational therapists, sports-development officers, or equipment designers. The range of occupations in each title provides more breadth than depth; only a spread is devoted to each position. A chart in every title compares the best part of each job as well as the skills needed. The clear color photos, large font, and bright, uncluttered designs might make these volumes appealing to ESL students. The indexes will help to locate initial information when beginning a unit on careers, providing a starting point for further research. –Diana Pierce, Leander High School, TX School Library Journal "Series Made Simple" 11/1/2012" - School Library Journal
