Night Shift by Jessie Hartland

Night ShiftThis picture book is a very fun and informative look at the people who are working while most people are sleeping.  The illustrations are very appealing and done in a very child-like, maybe 4th or 5th grade boy style.  The stories of each of the people working the night shift are all woven together by questions such as  “Who does the road worker visit for a snack at 3:30 a.m.?”.  We learn about donut bakers and tugboat captains and bridge painters and window dressers.  There is a lot of good information that would appeal to teachers teaching about careers and occupations, but mostly it is was interesting to think of a whole world of activity happening that we might not often think about.  I think boys would especially love this book, but I really liked it too!
