School Library Journal Reviews 2010 November

Gr 1-3--These narratives are simple yet informative and printed in an easy-to-read font. Each one begins with a simple introduction explaining the importance of the job. Subsequent chapters, sprinkled with "Did You Know?" sidebars, broadly explain responsibilities, requirements, and preparation, as well as what happens during a typical day in the position. A "History Lesson" in each book discusses, for example, when U.S. schools began to provide counseling and offers period photos, and a "School News" page includes brief stories and facts, such as a short profile of Laura Bush and a mention of International School Library Month in Librarians. Eye-catching pages of yellows and blues, large bold blue chapter headings, and many smiling faces of real people at work offer visual appeal. A friendly look at the tasks, responsibilities, and value of people who work in a school.
