Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2016 April)

Gr 2–5—Exploring careers that mix brains with physically demanding work, the titles in this series shed light on often less frequently covered career choices, many which society could ill afford to do without. The subject is refreshing and the texts cover a range of topics, from tools of the trade and training to safety precautions and future opportunities. In each, vibrant photographs of individuals on the job, graphic organizers, and "Digging Deeper" sidebars supplement the primary text and should keep students interested and engaged. Despite the lack of extras, the series is a winning testament to the jobs that are crucial to our communities. VERDICT Strong additions to career collections.
