I KNOW A NEWSPAPER REPORTER (A Community Helper Book)

Jane is a newspaper reporter, and on her day off she takes her younger sister for a visit to the office. The paper's staff, an unusually cleancut and relaxed group, conduct a low pressure tour which introduces the basics of dummies, rewrites, leads and linotype. The information, reinforced by conventional but graphic illustrations, is concrete, and there's been an obvious attempt to avoid racial and sexual stereotypes: the city editor is black, and the young girl is asked, ""Are you a future sportswriter?"" A brief, pleasant social call on the journalistic profession, but the invitation is extended to beginning readers only.
