Grade 5-9-Both books begin with the same test to help readers determine their individual abilities and interests. With the results as a catalyst, they can then explore the wide array of careers that are examined in detail. In Art, jobs such as actor, animator, chef, and photojournalist are included. Communications careers range from hotel manager to publicist to broadcaster. Each entry defines the position, gives suggestions for "trying it on" through activities or places to visit, and describes it from the perspective of someone working in the field. Relevant books, CD-ROMs, magazines, Web sites, and organizations to contact are given where appropriate. Both books have lists of additional career opportunities with practical advice on how to investigate them and suggestions for further reading. Reeves's writing is upbeat, easy to read, and filled with pertinent information. The format is appealing and in the few fill-in-the-blanks sections, readers are reminded that they should use a separate piece of paper. Black-and-white photographs and pencil drawings illustrate the books. Career Discovery Encyclopedia (Ferguson, 1997) and Maria Gisler's Art (VGM, 1998) are good choices, but these titles are outstanding.
