Booklist Reviews 2020 April #1

This oversize picture book suggests a variety of slightly off-the-beaten-path occupations for young readers. Are you a patient person? Then you might try a career as a tortoise walker. Do you have a strong stomach? Body farming might be in your future. Two-page spreads address traditional career considerations, and then suggest three or four related possibilities. Are you an emotional person? Perhaps you could find work as a professional apologizer, mourner, or studio-audience laugher. Are you into animals? Try being an elephant dresser, chicken sexer, or sloth nanny. Every entry is an actual occupation, and all are accompanied by very basic job descriptions. Brief blurbs, outsize fonts, and top-to-bottom digital illustrations fill the pages, giving readers plenty to look at. There are a couple quizzes on work sites and uniforms, and all sorts of trivia tidbits scattered throughout the book. This might not seem like a first choice for the career section, but the important message about following your passion—breath odor evaluator? Imax screen cleaner?—comes through loud and clear. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
