Booklist - U. S. Coast Guard,
April 1, 2019

“Get ready to meet the Coasties! As part of the Serving Our Country series (6 titles), this beginning-reader style book introduces youngsters to the impressive variety of duties belonging to the U.S. Coast Guard. Each two-page spread presents one scenario in which the Coast Guard would be called: search and rescue, buoy repair, policing waters, wartime service, icebreaking, and more. A large, crisp photo occupies one page, while the other page features a short paragraph describing how Coasties might help resolve a dangerous or worrisome situation. Glossary-defined vocabulary words appear in bold, and 'Force Facts' cut through some pages in a red swath of Coast Guard trivia. One of the book’s best points is its excited tone ('Sailors are lost at sea!'), which will hold readers’ attentions and make for smooth sailing. ”—Julia Smith
