KIRKUS REVIEW

Practically every youngster today has a brother or cousin or friend in the service -- and insatiable curiosity about uniforms, insignia, life at camp, and so on. Here's the answer -- a picture book for eight to ten year olds which their slightly older brothers and sisters may find enlightening. In pictures, codles of them, and caption text the facts are presented as brief answers to questions sure to be asked. Well handled, simple, concise, and not talked down to the children. There's no attempt to make this a work of art, but the sketches by Jeanne Bendick are factually correct and done with a few lines and quite an air. There's too much ground covered, perhaps, but one part or another will catch immediate attention, and the balance can be absorbed later. I don't know of any other book that does just this.
