Knowing What to Look Up
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Can you help me?" Katie asked the librarian. "I need to write a report on a career I would like."
 
2     "Sure," the librarian said cheerfully. What career are you thinking about?"
 
3     "I'm thinking about being a hair dresser." Katie said.
 
4     "Well," the librarian said, "where would you like to start?"
 
5     "I'm not really sure," Katie said.
 
6     "What kinds of things do you have to tell about your career?" the librarian asked.
 
7     "I need to tell how much money they make, what training they need to have, and what kinds of work they do. I also need to tell if there are any careers like this one that I might like," said Katie.
 
8     The librarian handed Katie a large book. It was called The Big Book of Careers. "Let's look in here," she said. "We can start with the index."
 
9     Katie knew the topics were arranged in alphabetical order in the index. She found the big H heading, and started looking for hair dresser. She didn't find it. She told the librarian. Maybe she needed a different book.
