Aprendemos de carreras (We Learn about Careers).
Randall, Clint; Van Buskirk, Sue
Designed to help Spanish speaking children learn more about various professions, this book features scenes of people at work in 22 different occupations. The Spanish text, illustrations and learning exercises were developed as supplementary reading materials for elementary grades by students in a Bilingual Teachers Aide Program at Mesa Community College. Both language and content provide linguistically and culturally sensitive material relevant to the experience of the Chicano child of the Southwest. The different types of occupations which are described include a judge, teacher, doctor, nurse, carpenter, electrician, painter, garbageman, postman, bus driver, shoe salesman, butcher, waitress, policeman, photographer, fireman, bank teller, barber, and cashier. The large illustrations are black and white "coloring book" style. (DS)
