Police: Hurrying! Helping! Saving!by Patricia Hubbell, Viviana Garofoli (Illustrator)
Another from this best-selling author/illustrator team (My Big Rig, Things that Go series) -- children can see the different things that police do from directing traffic, performing first aid, shoveling snow, etc. -- the police are our neighborhood heroes! For ages 3-8.
A picture book with a rhyming text, bright colors, and plenty of action. It presents officers of both genders and various ethnicities on the job-as head of a team or crew, a detective, or a patrolman preventing crime. It also introduces canine assistants, patrolmen on horseback, and officers assisting with traffic control. The cartoon art was digitally rendered. This brief, introductory look at law enforcement makes a fine companion to the author and illustrator's Firefighters: Speeding! Spraying! Saving!
