From the Series Community Helpers
In Librarians, early readers will learn what librarians do to ensure their libraries have the resources people need to write reports, find jobs, discover new books, and more. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage emergent readers as they discover what librarians do on the job.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify different areas of a librarian’s workspace, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about librarians online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Librarians also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
Librarians is part of Jump!’s Community Helpers series.
