Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
This early reader's book, part of the "If You Were" series, explores the world of law enforcement. Filled with pictures and interesting information, this title helps introduce children to the jobs police officers perform in their communities. From catching criminals, patrolling the skies over a city or rescuing hostages, children are given snapshot descriptions to read and relevant pictures to examine about the daily on-the-job lives of policemen and women in urban and rural areas across America. This book is also noteworthy for its liberal use of pictures depicting women plus racial and ethnic minorities engaged in performing their law enforcement responsibilities. Parents and children will find useful information at the end of the book, including: an entertaining pictorial retrospective of old-time police officers; a glossary and close-ups of an officer's uniform and badge; and select equipment.
