School Library Journal - Choose Your Own Career Adventure at the White House

Gr 4-6–This interactive approach employs a classified ad to hook readers. For example, in Military, an air force pilot must have perfect eyesight and stay cool, calm, and collected in a stressful situation—and be willing to travel overseas. If this job isn’t for you, try army cyber officer! Each volume showcases six jobs that cross disciplines, as in Olympics, where gymnast is followed by graphic designer, who creates logos and costumes, and then venue director, who organizes the needs of a large group of athletes. “Explore It” and “Try It” sections encourage online inquiry and ways to participate vicariously, such as writing a pep talk for halftime in Super Bowl. Another writing activity asks students to imagine what it would be like to work at their favorite job. Uncaptioned photos are decorative rather than informational. The detailed glossary in each title is helpful. VERDICT Less substantive than some, but a good first step for students.
