School Library Journal – Series Made Simple,
Spring 2018

“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.”
