When I Grow Up I Want to the U.S. Army!

When I Grow Up I Want to be in the U.S. Army! comes with my highest recommendation. Virtually error-free, this book is written at an age-appropriate level for upper elementary school children. It smoothly weaves together a fictional narrative with a wide range of facts about the U.S. Army. With a well-targeted vocabulary, children will be able to understand the facts and narrative using context clues and further assisted with the glossary at the end of the book.

The pictures included a variety of diagrams, real photos, illustrations, and photos and illustrations combine to form complete images. Even at two years old, my son poured over the pictures, more excited with each page. “Wow!” he exclaimed at picture after picture. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough for him. He was especially taken with posters about historic Cavalry horses and a diagram of a tank.

This book is a bit on the lengthy side, but provides the facts in a way that generates enthusiasm for further research. This is an excellent read, definitely worth exploring.
