Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In three previous books, Mrs. Madoff's class celebrated Halloween and Thanksgiving and participated in show-and-tell. Now, the children are introducing their family's careers to their classmates. One mother is a judge, a grandmother is the school crossing guard, and the teacher's husband is a paleontologist. A father is a construction worker, a mom is a nurse, and another mother is a veterinarian. Each profession is depicted on a double-page spread; a page showing the curious child with the family member is opposite a full-page picture of the contented adult at work. The text is written in a large font, which makes it easy to read, and the colorful pictures are equally appealing. Useful for units on careers and community helpers.

From Booklist

From the ongoing series about Mrs. Madoff's classroom, including Halloween Day (1997), Show and Tell Day (1997), and Thanksgiving Day (1999), this brightly illustrated picture book features Pablo telling about Career Day. Each of the 10 children introduces a parent or grandparent, who demonstrates or talks about his or her occupation: construction worker, judge, musician, picture-book author-illustrator, crossing guard, sanitation truck driver, and so on. Each spread is devoted to one child and visitor, with a picture and the text on the left-hand page and a large picture of the adult at work on the right. The story ends with the children at play in their classroom, where they pretend to work at the jobs that appeal to them. Clearly laid out and cheerfully presented, this picture book strikes just the right tone for its intended audience. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Library Binding
This is the fourth book written by Anne Rockwell's about Mrs. Madoff's class. This multicultural career book has children introducing their parents' careers to the rest of the class. There is a wide variety of careers included not just the typical ones. There is an African-American mother who is a judge, a child's grandmother who is the school crossing guard, one dad is a paleontologist, a Hispanic dad is construction worker, an African-American mom is a nurse, and a mom who is a veterinarian. The characters cross different cultures and genders for the wide selection of careers chosen to be represented in this book. The illustrations are very colorful and each career is represented on two facing pages. The first page shows the child with their parent and a small picture portraying their profession. The next page shows that person working in their field of work. The text is written in a large font, which makes it easy to read.

I have used this book when doing a "Jobs in our Community" type unit with K and 1st graders. I like the many faces shown and the blurring of gender stereotyping in work. The text and illustrations are simple yet engaging.

The children in Mrs. Madoff's class will give young readers the chance to explore many occupations as they introduce lots of interesting guests to classmates on Career Day.

Bulldozer operator, judge, musician, artist, paleontologist, crossing guard, nurse, veterinarian, sanitation truck driver, carpenter, grocery store manager and best of all, the teacher's college teacher, will entertain and inform.

The adults have interesting work to do, but so do the kids, and all the their fun activities are beautifully illustrated by Lizzy Rockwell.

Career Day is a good introduction for young readers to the world of careers open to them in that big grownup world to come. Definitely recommended.

The book gave a great idea on how a class can have presentations about their parents career. It gave great examples of various careers. This book was actually chosen under the common core standards for kindergarten.
