Reviews - What do customers think about A Day in a Life of a Police Officer (Level 1: Beginning to Read)?
Includes motorcycle cops and more! Feb 19, 2008
My 2 year old is a huge fan of police and firefighters, but he especially loves motorcycle police. It is very hard to find any toys or books with motorcycle cops. I ordered this book hoping it would have at least a picture of one, and I wasn't disappointed! It briefly tells about and includes pictures for different kinds of police, including police on motorcycles, bikes and horses. The rest of the book is good, too. If you have a kid that's into police, this book would be a great addition to your collection!
Highly recommended for young readers! Sep 19, 2007
Joey's Aunt Ann is a police officer and through her nephew's eyes the reader learns about a police officer's day, tools of the trade and all the different kinds of police officers there are. We even meet Joey's favorite police dog!
During Aunt Ann's day, she rescues a lost boy and even catches a bear who escaped from the zoo! The photographs are excellent, and the review of terminology with a picture dictionary is proof of the careful preparation that went into this volume.
A New Favorite for an Officer's Niece Dec 13, 2003
I am an officer, and was thrilled to find a book featuring a female police officer. In one week it became my niece's favorite book, having me read it over and over to her. She recognized the pictures highlighting special words, and even recognizes the same things in real life. I thought her mom would scream when my niece's favorite word became "badge", and she pointed out every emergency vehicle she saw out on the roads when they went for drives. This book helped my niece become much more verbal, and helps show her that female officers are positive role models, just like me.
