It’s one thing for students to read about cool careers that other people do. It’s quite another thing to put them right in the middle of all the action. Using kid-friendly vignettes, Choose a Career Adventure introduces what many middle-grade readers might understandably consider “awesome” in easy-to-understand terms that put these careers within reach. Encouraging big dreams, each chapter makes a case for the learning and skills it takes to make those dreams come true. Through interactive elements and relevant web links, readers find real-life proof that cool careers exist and get a chance to see themselves doing them.
