A Review of "Dangerous Jobs in Action" in School Library Journal

What better way to communicate the dangers inherent in a risky occupation than by sharing the stories of real men and women at work? Job details (conditions, equipment, safety concerns, etc.) are integrated into the narrative. Deep-Sea Fishermen, Smoke Jumpers, and Oil Rig Workers also stress the importance of learning about nature and unpredictable weather systems. Captioned photos on every page show the working environs, tools, and men and women in typical work-related clothing. ‘Think About It’ sections pose open-ended questions for students to consider. VERDICT This series on high-interest jobs is notable for its emphasis on safety, teamwork, and problem-solving. A solid addition sure to entice browsers.
