Ages 3-6. The team that created the A. D. D. Book for Kids [BKL Ap 15 00] offers another title to help young children understand themselves and their abilities. Using Dr. Howard Gardner's work about multiple intelligence as a framework for the text, Rotner and Kelly portray young children with linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, and interpersonal talents. Clear, full-color photographs depict children in a variety of activities--swimming, spelling, playing the violin, etc.--as simple text lets children know whether the activity is something the pictured child does well, has trouble with, or is in the process of learning. The message (everyone is good at something) comes through strongly, as does the authors' encouragement to continue working toward mastery of more difficult skills. This will be useful in preschool and kindergarten classrooms that focus on celebrating students' strengths and learning styles. Buy a second copy for the parenting shelf. Kay Weisman

PreSchool-Grade 1-In this deceptively simple, upbeat look at the world of work, a minimal text and large, colorful photos present smiling men and women in conventional and unconventional jobs. The book includes pic Column Wraptures of those highly visible occupations that fascinate children such as firefighter, construction worker, and dog walker as well as behind-the-scenes employment in health care, offices, service professions, and the creative arts. While the author acknowledges that "some work to earn money," she encourages her audience to think beyond the traditional definition by mentioning volunteerism; hobbies as work; the responsibilities of children in the home, classroom, and neighborhood; and even the jobs animals perform. A useful concept book.
