This book has amazing full-page illustrations on every page for every letter of the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet has a little poem to explain various military terms. Then, the sidebar for each letter contains additional information. For example the letter "A" page: the main text reads,
"Give me an A for Army, and an A for Air Force, too.
An A for all the Armed Services behind the red, white, and blue.
They stand at attention, tall and proud, all impeccably dressed.
An A for the American Armed Forces, an A for the world's very best."
The sidebar begins:
"The Armed Services of the United States protect our nation, its people, and its ideals. There are five branches that make up the United States military.
The U.S. Army is the main ground force for the United States. It's the largest and oldest branch of the service, founded in 1775...."
There are 4 more paragraphs on the other branches of the military for the letter A.
I highly recommend this book! My boys love it! (and I do, too!)
