Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Blue Angels, consisting of precision pilots and their jets, thrill young and old spectators alike with their demonstrations around the country. This elite group is part of the U.S. Navy. This book allows students to get a close-up look at the Angels without leaving home. The text covers the Angels in action, their planes, specific formations, and jobs. Action photos add pizzazz. Short sentences provide sequencing (now/then, now/next, etc.) and ease of independent reading. As with other titles in "The U.S. Armed Forces" series, this book is embellished with "Blazer Fact" sidebars and yellow, blue, and white star designs that enliven the pages. Back matter includes a seven-word glossary, extra books for research, an index, and information on the Fact Hound internet site. Add this book and others in the series to school libraries and classrooms. The attention-grabbing series is sure to pull in many readers and younger children who just want to look at the photos. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 12.
