Making Our Kids Proud

I am a member of [Anchorage, Alaska] Local 1547 and a children's library assistant. I am very thankful to be a part of the union for so many reasons.

I want to let members know of a beautiful new book, "Someone Builds the Dream" by Lisa Wheeler and illustrated by Loren Long. The book celebrates the skilled women and men who work to see the plans of architects, engineers and designers brought to life. As you can imagine the subject of construction and machines is popular with kids. The subject of skilled workers is valuable for children to explore. Highlighting a parent's chosen field of work makes this book a great read to educate their own children as well as classrooms about the usefulness of skilled labor.

Thanks for all you do to keep us informed!
