Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-These titles take a lighthearted approach to their subjects, offering young people some avenues to explore according to their own interests and skills. Readers are advised not to mark the pages, but they may be tempted to fill in the blanks of the "Get Some Direction" questionnaire. This is followed by fun-to-read descriptions ("The military is no place for a couch potato") of 15 different careers, a list of resources and Web sites, and a personal profile (with photo) of an individual working in the field. In Adventure, a female firefighter talks about the physical challenges and the extended family she has formed with her colleagues. Detective, welder, pilot, oil rig worker, and scuba diver are some of the careers discussed. In Money, an investment banker reveals that her childhood aspiration was to work in a library. E-merchant, technology officer, and venture capitalist are included with other traditional careers such as business manager, lawyer, and advertising executive. Appealing black-and-white cartoons are sprinkled throughout and will draw young people to this series.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Diane Lindsey Reeves' Career Ideas for Kids Who Like Adventure.

Gr. 6-10. Entries from the award-winning Career Ideas series are as hands-on and applicable as readers could want. This volume introduces the topic of career choices by making a clear analogy to an adventurous journey. Librarians should note the fill-in-the-blanks questionnaire and the interest inventory from which young people subsequently determine their most likely career possibilities. There are also profiles of professionals to give readers a multidimensional view of job benefits and drawbacks. Industrious kids will have fun exploring their options thanks to sharp, lively writing and appealing graphics, and students required to do career research will find useful information to supplement what's available in standard career reference resources.

More About the Author

What do you want to be when you grow up? Answering that single question has taken me on an amazing journey as an author. Little did I know 10 years ago when I was writing the very first title, Career Ideas for Kids Who Like Science, that I would eventually fill over 50 books with ideas to help students of all ages find bright futures. And, believe it or not, there are still more books to come!

Two of my new series add some extra fun to the career exploration process. In the first, the Virtual Apprentice series, young readers find out what it's really like to be...a pop musician, a firefighter, an oceanographer and nine other exciting professions. Hot off the press in August of 2009 is the Way Out Work series, a full-color, high interest take on Goofy Jobs, Scary Jobs, Gutsy Jobs, and more.

All of my books are carefully designed to provide enough entertainment to keep kids interested and enough educational oomph for teachers to use them in their classrooms. The idea was to link learning with the real world in order to spark ideas, inspire dreams, and get kids thinking about all the things they could be.

I found this book really helpful. I am currently in High School and like money (A LOT) but don't know what I am going to do when I leave school. This book gave me some reveiws on some jobs that now I think i would really enjoy and hopefully make a bit as well. The series "Careers ideas for kids" is a must to anyone in high school, college or to anyone that wants to change career.
