Grade 4-7-Conversations with 12 scientists including Jane Goodall and Robert Ballard. Interviews feature introductions by the subjects, explaining how they became involved in their particular field of interest, followed by a set of 10 questions, developed with the help of students. Queries include "What is the scariest thing that has ever happened in your work?" and "What was your biggest discovery?" Many of the articles conclude with a page devoted to a special project or program connected to the scientist's work complete with address or Web site information. The large, full-color photographs give readers a good idea of the on-the-job conditions of each discipline. The lack of biographical information limits the usefulness of this book for reports but the short articles and question-and-answer format will appeal to reluctant readers. While cover art that depicts younger children climbing, swimming, etc., may not attract older readers, the overall message of following your dreams is one to which all children will relate.
