Discover the military branches that keep our country safe. Big photographs show the powerful machines, high-tech tools, and brave people that make up the U.S. military.
Large font, simple texts, and candid photos combine to make this an attractive series. Each title contains four chapters of two-to-eight pages. Two-to-three sentences per page describe the purpose of each military branch ("The Navy is a branch of the United States Armed Forces"); some of the jobs involved ("Some sailors are navigators...Some sailors are mechanics"); and a selection of the weapons, ships, and land vehicles used. Content is limited, but clear, and vocabulary is appropriate. Unfamiliar words are defined in a glossary, but not noted or defined in the narrative. The texts are closely tied to the excellent color photography on the facing pages. These titles will be popular with young readers.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
