Career Day by Anne Rockwell

Book Description

Michiko's mother writes books. Jessica's mother is a veterinarian. Pablo's father is a construction worker. What kinds of work do people you know do? On Career Day the children in Mrs. Madoff's class take turns introducing special visitors. Every visitor has something interesting to share, and together the class learns all about the different work people do. In the fourth Mrs. Madoff book, Anne and Lizzy Rockwell revisit Mrs. Madoff's class as they help young readers explore the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The mother-daughter team of Anne and Lizzy Rockwell (Thanksgiving Day, 1999, etc.) presents their fourth visit to Mrs. Madoffs busy, bright, and active classroom. Today is career day, when students bring special visitors to school to talk about their work. It may be scary for a child to introduce his or her guest, but the first-person narrator does a fine job of introducing his bulldozer-driving dad, Mr. Lopez. Charlies visitor is his mom, a judge; Kates dad plays bass in an orchestra at night, practices, and handles child-care during the day, while his wife works in a bank. The multicultural class meets a writer, a paleontologist, a school-crossing guard, a nurse, a veterinarian, a sanitation worker, a carpenter, a grocery store manager, and even a student teachers college professor. A full-page illustration shows each worker on the job; smaller details facing these pages introduce them and their host children to readers as well as to the rest of Mrs. Madoffs class. A sparkling, family-centered, no-threat introduction to considerations of what might be fun for little ones to do when they grow up. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews)
