Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kip Wilson
One of titles in the "Women in the U. S Armed Forces" series, this book presents the information in an engaging combination of text and colorful photos. This series introduces readers to the life of women in the military by highlighting an individual woman in her role in the service, providing the background history of women in that service branch, and describing the training and daily life all women in that particular part of the armed forces. This book launches readers into the life of helicopter pilot Jennifer Grieves, who has held the important job of being the first woman to fly Marine One, the presidential helicopter. Readers will learn about both the highs and lows of life as a soldier, including everything from their rigorous training to preparing for battle. Glossary terms are marked in bold in the text and are well-defined at the bottom of the page, as well as in the back of the book for reference. A helpful timeline and an index are also included. Overall, this book includes some great information for young readers who would like to to get a firsthand taste of what life is like as a female in the U. S. Marine Corps. Reviewer: Kip Wilson
