During recent years many teachers, vocational guidance counselors and librarians have recognized the value of fiction as a means of encouraging young people to read about occupations. Entertaining novels and stories about workers in various fields have been particularly useful for exploratory purposes with students who could not decide upon a career and in cases where students were apparently indifferent to the necessity of making any choice. Other important uses of fiction in guidance have been pointed out in recent books. One writer says, Stories with accurate occupational settings are stimulating and effective in giv ing the real feeling of occupational life. For example, Janes Island, by Marjorie Hill Alice, gives the reader a glimpse of scientific work. The story in Edna Ferbers So Big is sketched against a background of vegetable gar dening outside a large city. . . .
