Booklist (Miriam Aronin )
These new books in the Community Helpers series introduce a variety of professions that young children are likely to encounter in their daily lives. Each book begins with a child who is interested in being that profession, then asks ‚"What do they do?" The book presents examples of workers in that job and one or two activities they do or simple information about their training. The use of first and last names is unfortunately inconsistent across the books. Custodians showcases several charming examples of hardworking cleaners and fixers as they repair an oven, change an apartment building’s lightbulb, and squeegee windows clean. Photos show a racially diverse array of men and women on the job in every book. Back matter highlights literal tools of the trade in a labeled photo and includes a picture glossary.
