              Unavailable for almost 20 years, a little-know Dr. Seuss book about careers gets a fresh new look! Wildly imaginative and told in rollicking rhyme, this beginning reader about careers could ONLY have been written by Dr. Seuss! Featuring a mix of real jobs (like firefighter, docto...r, teacher, farmer, etc.) and Seussian ones (including perfumer smeller, fishbone boner, bass-drum banger, and roller coaster owner), it will incite plenty of giggles while planting the seed of a serious idea: That everyone needs to do something in life, and there are LOTS of choices! Fully illustrated with charming new art (featuring a multi-cultural cast in non-traditional gender roles) this is a great choice for home and classroom use! Launched in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat and written specifically for emergent readers, Beginner Books combine an exacting blend of simple words and fun pictures that encourage children to read--all by themselves.

              A Marine Corps combat veteran with twenty years of service describes her professional battle against gender bias in the Marines and the lessons it holds for other arenas.Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Kate Germano arrived at Parris Island convinced that if she expected more of t...he female recruits just coming into Corps, she could raise historically low standards for female performance and make women better Marines. One year after she took command of the Fourth Recruit Training Battalion, shooting qualifications of the women under her command equaled those of men, injuries had decreased, and unit morale had noticeably improved. Then the Marines fired her.This is the story of Germano's struggle to achieve equality of performance and opportunity for female Marines against an entrenched male-dominated status quo. Germano charges that the men above her in the chain of command were too invested in perpetuating the subordinate role of women in the Corps to allow her to prove that the female Marine can be equal to her male counterpart. She notes that the Marine Corps continues to be the only service where men and women train separately in boot camp or basic training. Meanwhile, in the U.S. Army, women have already become Army Rangers and applied to be infantry officers.Germano addresses the Marine Corps' $35-million gender-integration study, which shows that all-male squads perform at a higher level than mixed male-female squads. This study flies in the face of the results she demonstrated with the all-female Fourth Battalion and raises questions about the Marine Corps' willingness to let women succeed.At a time when women are fighting sexism in many sectors of society, Germano's story has wide-ranging implications and lessons not just for the military but for corporate America, the labor force, education, and government.
