"How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals" by Sy Montgomery
“This is a beautiful book — essential reading for anyone who loves animals and knows how much they can teach us about being human.” ― Gwen Cooper, author of "Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat" | Learn more
From School Library Journal
Grade 8-Up This informative and entertaining title presents young women with an opportunity to find out more about some out-of-the-ordinary jobs. For each occupation, a woman describes what it is about her career that she enjoys, how she came to choose it, skills needed, a typical day, favorite and least favorite aspects of the job, hours, training, dress code, and work environment. Some of the fields covered are Egyptologist, dolphin trainer, publisher, Disney imagineer, special agent for the FBI, wedding planner, stuntwoman, fashion designer, and fighter pilot. Additional resources are listed for each one. All these women love what they do, and admit that money is secondary. (There is no mention of salary or even starting pay.) There is also a discussion of attaining your dream job, then losing it. The second part of the book focuses on helping readers learn about themselves, define dreams, and set goals. Though some of the careers highlighted here require more than just formal school training, they bring to the table options that many teens might not even consider. -Nicole M. Marcuccilli, Glenview Public Library, IL

Gr. 7-up. In this cheerful career guide, the authors combine inspiring profiles of everyday women (as in their 1999 book Gutsy Girls) with self-help suggestions (like those in their 1998 The Right Moves). The first part introduces women who work in a wide variety of fields, including the arts, media, show business, science, sports, military, and so on. Each woman offers insight into her job's challenges and describes her own often difficult entry into the profession. Information boxes detail each job's suggested education, hours, dress code, and perks. A concluding section offers tips on internships, interviews, and more, and a personal account reminds readers that an individual can have more than one dream job. There's no salary information, which teens will miss, but that omission may keep the book from becoming dated too quickly. An upbeat, browsable resource for teens, recent college grads, and career counselors. Gillian Engberg
