Kirkus Reviews

An A-to-Z visual glossary of terminology, planes, and history of the U.S. Air Force.

This alphabet book is heavy on airplane specifics and flight jargon. “F is for Fighter Jet,” and the accompanying text and images outline five specific jets, including the F-15 Eagle, which flies at nearly 2,000 miles per hour. “P is for Planes” includes a look at vehicles such as the KC-135, the Spectre, and the E-8D Joint STARS, while “I is for Insignia” features a chart displaying badges and ranks for Air Force personnel. The artwork includes photographs (some historical) and images that include elements that look painted or drawn. The layouts are visually appealing and well balanced. Figures depicted are diverse, but other than the Tuskegee Airmen, there is no discussion of people of color in the Air Force. Adults and children alike stand to learn plenty from this title given the range of topics, terms, and history covered, though the level of detail and content make this most appropriate for readers seeking in-depth information on the Air Force rather than those in search of a simple alphabet book for young children.

Readers eager to distinguish bombers from missiles will be pleased.
