Detailed Description


ISBN: 1-57023-175-3

By Linda Thornburg

Written especially for girls ages 11 through 14, this title in the popular Cool Careers for Girls Series profiles 10 women working as crime solvers. Each woman reveals how she broke into her field, the nature of her work, and why she loves what she does.

Books in this popular, highly acclaimed series take a fascinating look at exciting nontraditional careers for women. Filled with inviting graphics and photos, each volume describes the careers of 10-11 women. These women were like some girls today - they dreamed of successful careers but often didn't know what they wanted to do or how to go about pursuing a career that would be meaningful to them. Through sharing their stories, they provide young readers with good role models and excellent advice for preparing for their particular careers. The upbeat and informative pages, written in an age-appropriate style, encourage career exploration and broaden girls' career horizons. 140 pages. 7 x 9. 2003.

Each book also provides:

  • A personality checklist for each job
  • Skills and physical demands
  • Education requirements
  • Lists of books, videos, and websites
  • Salary range
  • Organizations and professional associations to contact

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES FROM REVIEWERS AND READERS
"A welcome and valued addition to school counselor, school library and community library job and career reference collections."
--The Children's Bookwatch

"Inspirational and easy to read."
--School Library Journal

"These are inspiring stories with positive messages."
--Employment Review Online

"I went through this book within a few hours. I felt as though I had interviewed each of these women about their careers without doing the leg work. It also gave salary information, experience and educational requirements. It is a great book to begin your research into a career in crime solving without becoming a police woman. It also has web references for more in depth information. This book would be great for men as well but it definitely has the edge of assisting women in fields that are predominantly occupied by men."
--Amazon.com reader
