A noteworthy review of Reading Rocks! from School Library Journal on January 1, 2008
The first book includes a fascinating history of the dance, a section on training and performing, and a chapter about several famous ballerinas. Doctor follows Saida Hamdani, a California pediatrician, through her routine. The book includes biographical material and statements about what the physician looks for when she examines a patient. Photography and Chef are the strongest titles. Both provide a ringside view of real people performing their jobs and introduce several types of professionals. All four books have lively texts, sidebars, and attractive full-color photographs. Purchase where career books are in demand.
