School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-8-Attention-grabbing covers will attract readers to these hi/lo offerings. The introductions give a brief history of their topics; four short chapters then describe the roles of pilots and Special Forces teams, respectively, their qualifications and requirements, their training, and their missions. The format is inviting with half- to full-page color action photos. Acronyms and technical terms are defined in the text. The chapter titles and subheadings, printed in terra-cotta ink in a font that looks as though it were created on an old typewriter with a worn ribbon, do not enhance the format. Air Force has some accuracy problems. The four-engine prop planes shown in one photo are definitely not the World War I vintage biplanes mentioned in the text or implied in the caption. Reference is made to Largely AFB, VA, when it probably means Langley AFB. The caption accompanying a photo of the Air Force Academy states that it is located in Chapel, CO. Special Forces appears to be more accurate. These are not priority purchases, but could be useful where there is a need.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
