Charlotte Guillain worked as a bookseller, an English teacher and an editor before becoming an author. She has written more than 100 books, both fiction and non-fiction. She always wanted to be a writer and her top tip is to read as much as you can.
Gr 2-4-Highlighting multiple careers within each title, this series introduces vocations that go beyond the usual professional athlete or coach position, encouraging students to consider becoming occupational therapists, sports-development officers, or equipment designers. The range of occupations in each title provides more breadth than depth; only a spread is devoted to each position. A chart in every title compares the best part of each job as well as the skills needed. The clear color photos, large font, and bright, uncluttered designs might make these volumes appealing to ESL students. The indexes will help to locate initial information when beginning a unit on careers, providing a starting point for further research. (c) Copyright 2012.
