Written especially for girls ages 11 through 14, this title in the popular Cool Careers for Girls Series profiles 10 women working in the performing arts. 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. 7 x 9. 2000.
