Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
11/01/2013
Gr 3–6—Each title begins with an attention-grabbing critical situation. For example, Navy SEAL opens with the mission to find Osama bin Laden. Subsequent chapters, all very short, explain the special teams' duties, history, qualifications, and training. The titles end with spreads highlighting specific gear. The books are light on narrative and include text boxes of information ("The CIA teaches its ops different languages, so that they can communicate with people in foreign countries") and maps. They are heavy on aptly captioned color photos. Overall, a well-designed set, though dealing with violent careers.
