PreS-Gr 2—Not all heroes wear capes, and, in this series, they wear firefighter helmets or dental masks. Photos of children engaging with a diverse group of smiling professionals, such as the nurse gently giving Carlos a shot or the farmer showing Ann his vegetable crop, will resonate with the audience. However, the crisp and uncluttered photos at times seem outmoded and stereotypical, such as showing a farmer milking cows by hand, a female librarian keeping shelves neat, and a mechanic with greasy hands. Short declarative sentences like "Jan wants to be a chef. What does a chef do?" allow beginning readers to follow along or tackle the text independently. Instead of blueprints, the construction worker looks at "plans," and instead of a refrigerator, a chef puts food in a "cold room." VERDICT Simplified by design to be accessible to the youngest of readers. Consider for large collections.
