Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Calling all Innovators: A Career for You series offers career advice for areas in which change is a given. Each title looks at a specific field, describing historical background, the current job picture, the variety of positions involved, and the process. Breaking the flow of the exposition are double-page spreads highlighting specific examples past and present, interviewing a practitioner, revealing the artistic side, looking at a well-known company or professional association, and speculating on the future. The back matter includes statistics for three different types of jobs within the field. Animation describes the history of moving pictures and looks at some of today's most famous studios. All titles emphasize the teamwork required in today's jobs. Underlying this approach is the premise that jobs, roles, and fields change over the years, and career planning should take that into account. These smoothly written titles offer solid introductions to exciting fields for middle-school students.--Isaacs, Kathleen Copyright 2015 Booklist"
