This, along with photographs, allows readers to get an authentic look at what each career is like. Relevant examples, such the tools needed for CGI in the recent Jungle Book reboot and how tunnels must be blasted with explosives to build subways, are provided to help make the subjects come alive. Interactive activities and steps on how to pursue a job in each field are also presented. This engaging series is written at a third grade level and will be appreciated by upper elementary and middle school hi-lo readers.
VERDICT With the recent push toward STEM education, this is a must-have series for many libraries.
