Jake Learns About the U.S. Army.

When Jake’s teacher assigns a “career” project, Jake decides he wants to be a soldier in the United States Army. Jake and his father visit an Army surplus store to find items he can use to present his project. As they search the store, each item makes the history and proud spirit of the U.S. Army come to life for Jake and readers alike. Through Jake’s discoveries, readers are introduced to the history of the U.S. Army, what soldiers’ duties include,
and the equipment they use.

“No matter what the job or rank, each soldier’s duty is to protect our country against anyone who wants to hurt us or our country’s friends, or allies.” Couldn’t  have said it better myself. Alan Caruba – Bookviews

“Done in a very fun way that will make kids eager to learn about these careers, the illustrations and descriptions are perfect. Not only are they expressive and snappy learning tools, they are also great books for parents and kids to read together.” Amy Lignor – Goodreads

“As an educator, I am highly impressed with this motivating, engaging, and very informative Wigu book about America’s Armed Forces. Families and teachers will find the book’s content and lively illustrations to be both positive and very well expressed. Well done!”– Helene J.
