About the Author

Paulette Bourgeois is the author of more than 40 books for children, including the In My Neighborhood series and Oma's Quilt. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.


K-Gr 2-Bourgeois combines fact and fiction to create two appealing vignettes about the work of familiar community members. Police Officers follows the story of a little girl who reports a suspected bike theft in progress. An ensuing explanation of the judicial process includes an arrest; a court trial; and the function of a lawyer, a judge, and a district attorney. The book also profiles the careers of police officers and covers their typical duties and equipment. It concludes with safety tips. Similarly, Postal Workers follows a birthday card from a little boy to his Grandma as it travels across the country. The author explains how to address, stamp, and mail a letter; the purpose of zip codes, postal-carrier equipment, and mail-sorting machines; and profiles a day in the life of a postal worker. A positive image of both fields emerges within the framework of believable stories. The illustrations make use of soft colors, round lines, and humor to create warm characters in an attractive layout. Multicultural characters are represented, and both books are gender sensitive.-Paul Kelsey, East Baton Rouge Parish Public Library, LA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
