Working, Careers, & Community Helpers

Are your students eager to learn about the jobs people do? The fiction and nonfiction books in this section can help! Whether looking for inspiration from the past, dreaming about the future, or thinking about jobs they do right now, these books show kids that workers are central to communities, how all work is worthy of respect, and that all careers should be open to all people.

For books specifically about activism and/or volunteer work, check out our Activism and Civic Engagement section. For books focusing on the soft skills that workers need, our Social & Emotional Learning Character Traits section can help you nurture skills like leadership, responsibility, and teamwork.
