Count On Me

Who do you count on? You may look to friends, teammates, family, mentors and teachers to not let you down. And in return, they can count on you to do the same for them!
Being part of a workplace team also involves accepting responsibilities. When each team member acts responsibly, it makes the workplace more successful.
Responsible people take charge of their lives! Make a plan and set goals to develop your talents and skills! We challenge you, on Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day, to show your future workforce that they can #COUNTONME !
What is your job?  Are you taking your son or daughter to work with you on Thursday, April 27th, 2017?
All these National Geographic books help you and your children explore various types of jobs.  What a great way to bridge you and your child and get them excited about Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day!!!!

Ever wondered how to find a dinosaur? Paleontologist Dr. Scott Sampson, host of Dinosaur Train on PBS Kids, tells kids how! How do paleontologists find dinosaur bones? How do they know what dinosaurs ate or looked like? And what is paleontology, anyway? Dr. Scott tackles all these questions and more while inspiring kids to go out and make the next big dino discovery!

Mrs Mommy Booknerd and Carys' Review:  

Carys loves dinosaurs and one of the things on this 7 years old short list for jobs is being a paleontologist.  That was even her costume for Halloween this year, so I knew that my little neighbor friend would be perfect to help me review this book.  Carys loved that this book was all about one of her possible career paths.  She loves dinosaurs and learned tons of new things.  She loves learning that Dr. Scott's favorite dinosaurs is a Kosmoceratops, which happens to be her favorite too! She loved all the illustrations and pictures.  Carys got through this book with ease, as she excels in reading but this book may be a bit harder for new or beginning readers, but would be a great book to read with your child.  Carys and I loved that each two page spread covered a topic like WHAT IS A PALEONTOLOGY, WHERE ARE FOSSILS FOUND and HOW ARE FOSSILS REMOVED FROM THE FIELD, just to name a few.  This book is fun, informative and acts as a great compliment in any dinosaur lovers library.  Carys and I both give this book a HUGE 5 star rating and highly recommend it to any and all dino lovers!

Who says adults can't have fun? This book explores 100 of the coolest, wackiest, and most amazing jobs and careers out there, from astronaut to zookeeper, ice cream taster to game maker. 

 Jam-packed with inspiration, hands-on projects, advice from National Geographic explorers, interviews with experts, weird-but-true facts, and more, this new book in the popular "100 Things" series is a great way to get kids thinking creatively about career paths and excited about their futures!

Mrs Mommy Booknerd's Review
This book is FANTASTIC. I could not stop reading it and both my boys thought is was super cool too! Did you know that being a social worker is the 44th job listed in this book?  That is one of my jobs, so cool right!? In this book you will read about 100 things to be when you grow up.  All the jobs sound interesting and fun! This book has all the things that I love about National Geographic...the amazing photos, great tidbits and facts, as well as the well written table of content and index. This book will make you want to explore all the wonderful, wacky and interesting jobs out in the world!

National Geographic has inspired generations of explorers. Now it's your turn! Learn what it takes to be a real-life explorer in this fun and action-packed guide to discovering the world around us. Unearth ancient mummies and lost treasures, encounter wild animals and learn how to protect their habitats, and shoot for the stars with the latest technologies in space travel. Amazing stories, fantastic photos, and hands-on-activities inspire curious kids to start discovering on land, air, and sea. Profiles feature National Geographic explorers of all kinds: paleontologists, biologists, photographers, artists, writers, activists, conservationists, and more. Kids are inspired to follow their passions into careers and introduced to the first steps to take to achieve their dream.

Mrs Mommy Booknerd's Review
This book is quite speculator! Within this amazing book there are 100's photos of some of the coolest things to grab our attention and to get you out exploring.  In addition to all the fabulous photos, there are facts and tidbits galore. While you peruse the book you can look through the chapters and read things that interest you the most. The book is broken down by land, sea and sky and within those categories there are tons of places listed to explore. When this book arrived my son was instantly reading it bouncing from topic to topic...all I heard was "Did you know that...." followed by some amazing factoids and "Wow, look at this..." followed by me looking at some crazy cool things. These are the type of books that capture the attention of young readers because they have amazing vibrant photos with fun facts, game and puzzles. I love that I can trust that my child will be learning interesting and important facts and that their attention will be captured over the summer with this book. Every time you open it up you read you learn something new. This will be a staple read for my boys over the summer and it will get us out exploring and having grand adventures!
