Top reviews from the United States

Readers are given inside information on all aspects of the military. Any child of the military can relate to everything presented in this fantastic book. Having a family member in the military is something to be proud of and this book shows all the reasons why. I was so impressed with this book, I bought another copy for myself! I will most certainly be picking up Devin Scillian's other books!
"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!)
I have given this book at least 6 times to fellow military families for births of new military "brats" and have several more on order. It's received rave reviews from everyone.
The main space on the page contains an illustration and brief explanation for each letter, perfect for the younger kids. The edges of the pages have more details on that letter's subject making this a book that will grow with the child and I would imagine provide some learning material for adults as well.
I purchased another book in this series and found it much less detailed than this one. My only complaint with this book is the letter X which protrays a service member in the Exchange in just a T-shirt, without her DCU (Desert Camoflage Uniform) top on. This service member is out of uniform. (again, a small detail that only a service member or military family member would notice)
HIGHLY recommend! I just wish they had a board book version for the little ones to enjoy
