Scary Jobs by Diane Lindsey Reeves

Some people get scared for a living. Scary is blasting off in a spaceship bound for out-of-this-world destinations. Scary is flying into the eye of a hurricane, crossing your fingers, and hoping to come out safely on the other side. Scary is rolling out of a fiery car during a high-speed chase on the set of a movie. Yet these are things that some people do for a living, day in and day out. Scary Jobs explores many of these jobs as well as the people who choose to pursue these exhilarating - and often frightening - fields. Featuring kid-friendly sidebars and engaging activities that introduce readers to top jobs and professional working in the field, this new, full-color book is loaded with fun facts, trivia, and trade secrets to get kids thinking about future career possibilities. Jobs covered include: Astronaut; Bomb squad technician; Disease detective; Extreme sports pro; Forensic pathologist; Skywalker; Smokejumper; Spy; Stormchaser; and, Stunt person.
