I thinking about looking into those options. what possibilities I have overlooked! : )

    2. A book comprised of a rhyming list of jobsexcept for three. Voice, Talker, and Bride. Judging from the picture, voice is supposed to mean singer. Talker is harder. The picture might indicate philosopher or book critic. Politician, pundit, or public speaker might work though the picture doesn't particularly support them. Bride has no excuse. Either it's indicating that you can marry rich and be a trophy wife, or you can be a professional black widow, neither of which is a particularly good messag [...]

    5. This book remains to be my guiding force in life. It is very deep, just think about it! I read it when I need direction, or there is pressure for my life to morph into a certain way.Most definitely, one of the Doc's best books.If anyone has ever found out what a FOICE is, please explain. There are so many choices!"Don't bother to pack your bagsOr your mapWe won't need them where we're goin'We're goin' where the wind is blowin'Not knowin' where we're gonna stay"

    8. I had never heard of this book. I found another box of books from my sister tonight. This was tucked inside. I like it. The illustrations are not Seuss, just the text.The question is what will you be/do? Then the good doctor takes through a whirlwind of occupations. I tell my students yearly that I didn't know what all the possibilities were. Had I, I may have chosen to do something different. Meteorologist and cartographer are things I would have pursued.Nicely done!

    9. Really enjoyed this book because it wasn't just all the typical careers or jobs, but lots of different kinds of jobs for kids to look at that they could do if they decide to. I found the bride one an odd "job" to put in there because it felt like it was hinting at marrying rich and not working. I felt like this book also did a good job of showing girls and boys they can be anything they want and that their career doesn't have to be based on their sex.

    10. A book of occupations that for me reads a lot like playing a game of Old Maid (remember all the occupations and the brightly colored illustrations?) Most professions are familiar and some have difficult names (Lepidopterist) and together they present an array of choices that's exciting and represent all types of interests.

    11. My friend Kevin is reading a list of best children's books. I am following suite in order to discuss the books with him. By default, I give the books four-stars because they're good at what they're intended to do, which is to keep the attention of children and introduce them to literature.Positive, and hopeful. Transgresses gender stereotypes, slightly.

    12. I did not like the illustrations. They were very bland and did not use very good colors. I do think this would be a great book for career week. Some children have no idea what they want to be and I think this would be a great way to give children some ideas. It would also be a great read aloud during career week.

    13. This book teaches kids they can take on any vocation if they are white. Even a bride.They may become a noodle noodler if their race is slightly ambiguous.

    14. Kindergarten unit: jobs/career unitThis book has many interesting jobs that are not always considered during this unit.

    15. A fun book that allows young children to explore various careers and let's them know they can be anything they want to be.
