Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Rounds
This book, one of the "A Visit To" series, describes a town police station. Brief, fairly simple text accompanies full-page, color photographic illustrations of smiling police officers showing children around a police station. An officer is shown fingerprinting one of the children, and another officer poses with a police dog. A prisoner cell is shown, although the text does not state what it is used for. This book would serve as a good introduction to police stations for very young children and beginning readers, but would not be a useful source of information for students beyond first or second grade. The book includes a table of contents, a glossary (which defines a cell as "a small room with locks; some cells have bars,") still not making its function clear, a brief bibliography of recent titles, and a link to a list of Internet sites. An index is also included.
