School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-This is the place for kids to go for introductions to the U.S. Military, including information about the size of each branch, typical lengths of service, general mission, history, basic and officer training, equipment, and the wide range of jobs available. Glossary terms are defined at the bottom of the pages so readers don't have to hunt them down. The color photographs and reproductions feature a reasonable balance of men and women. Text boxes deliver intriguing facts. Unfortunately, the website link in the back of each volume leads early elementary age children to some military sites that are far above their reading and comprehension levels. That the U.S. Military is powerful ( "The U.S. Air Force is the strongest air power in the world.") and has the "best" of everything is reiterated across the titles. (c) Copyright 2013.
