KIRKUS REVIEW

RAILROAD WORKERS introduces younger readers to the immense spread of labor and activity involved in all the things that have come into being in connection with the railroads. Alice Keliher and the ""Picture Fact Associates"" through excellent photographs and descriptive text, plus excellent introductory material, takes one through the yards, the offices back of the yard, the trains themselves, and through diagrams and charts one learns the range of opportunity open to young people interested in the railroads as a channel of vocational activity. HOUSEHOLD WORKERS is one of the most important books in the series, because, so far as I know, there is no other book which stresses the importance of the household worker in modern living and indicates the dignity of the work as a means to livelihood and to ultimate professions (including marriage). Again the method is:- introductory material, descriptive text, photographs and captions.
