Things I've learned about the world of art, after nearly 35 years in publishing. I'm a bit biased here, as the author. However, I receive no royalties, I was hired to edit the entire series, and as a result, authored this title--and had a BLAST doing it! Was able to use information and interviews gathered over thirty years in the industry.  The layout and graphic, four-color, nature will appeal to boys and girls ages 9-12, with crossover for younger and older readers. The STEAM-based series focuses on real jobs and how technology has changed every industry--and created countless opportunities! Each includes activities, resources, and "Explore More" sites--safe, kid-friendly, internet sites that encourage children to use technology to explore their interests. Featured series for 2020 Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day, #WorkplaceSuperstars.
