Each page balances illustrations and graphics with blocks of text and short captions that explain the daily lives and routines of each job; however, some early readers may struggle to navigate the smaller text in this series. VERDICT Overall, a good series that will update school or public library collections. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
