Details: Product 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?" From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2-In three previous books, Mrs. Madoff's class celebrated Halloween and Thanksgiving and participated in show-and-tell. Now, the children are introducing their family's careers to their classmates. One mother is a judge, a grandmother is the school crossing guard, and the teacher's husband is a paleontologist. A father is a construction worker, a mom is a nurse, and another mother is a veterinarian. Each profession is depicted on a double-page spread; a page showing the curious child with the family member is opposite a full-page picture of the contented adult at work. The text is written in a large font, which makes it easy to read, and the colorful pictures are equally appealing. Useful for units on careers and community helpers. Wendy S. Carroll, Montclair Cooperative School, NJ Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist From the ongoing series about Mrs. Madoff's classroom, including Halloween Day (1997), Show and Tell Day (1997), and Thanksgiving Day (1999), this brightly illustrated picture book features Pablo telling about Career Day. Each of the 10 children introduces a parent or grandparent, who demonstrates or talks about his or her occupation: construction worker, judge, musician, picture-book author-illustrator, crossing guard, sanitation truck driver, and so on. Each spread is devoted to one child and visitor, with a picture and the text on the left-hand page and a large picture of the adult at work on the right. The story ends with the children at play in their classroom, where they pretend to work at the jobs that appeal to them. Clearly laid out and cheerfully presented, this picture book strikes just the right tone for its intended audience. Carolyn Phelan Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved From Kirkus Reviews The mother-daughter team of Anne and Lizzy Rockwell (Thanksgiving Day, 1999, etc.) presents their fourth visit to Mrs. Madoff's 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. Charlie's visitor is his mom, a judge; Kate's 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 teacher's 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. Madoff's 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) -- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP.
