Booklist
Good photos and short text will make this a useful addition to libraries with a perennial demand for 'community-helper' books.

Booklist - Carolyn Phelan
The combination of good photos and short text will make this a useful addition to libraries with a perennial demand for 'community helper' books for young children.
Kate Kohlbeck
The book stresses the friendliness of police officers and how they enjoy helping people.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Attractive, full-color photographs accompany a minimum amount of information. Starting with the cover photo of a smiling female law enforcer, the book stresses the friendliness of police officers and how they "enjoy helping people." The remainder of the book presents assorted, sometimes disjointed facts, e.g., police wear heavy clothes on cold days and keep records. There isn't a lot of the nitty-gritty of the job. Carol Greene's Police Officers Protect People (Child's World, 1996) and Alice Flanagan's Officer Brown Keeps Neighborhoods Safe (Children's, 1998) are better choices for this audience.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
