For our first book in our Recommended Reading section we are proud to present "Let's Meet Officer Frank" by author Officer Frank Caruso and illustrator Irene Williams. Below is a description from their web site, where you can find out about book signings and order their book.
Let's Meet Officer Frank, written by a police officer who is a black belt with Shuyokan Martial Arts Center and Illustrated by an elementary school teacher, helps children establish a positive first impression of law enforcement and was designed to educate preschool through third grade level children about their relationship with law enforcement. Detailed illustrations and simple text enable the child to see the police officer in both his on-duty and off-duty roles. Let's Meet Officer Frank strives to show young children that police officers lead normal lives, just like they do. Whether you are a teacher introducing students to community servants, a parent teaching your child about police officers, a librarian or crime prevention specialist using this book as a learning tool, or someone wanting to give a valuable gift to a child, Let's Meet Officer Frank can provide a visually stimulating learning experience for children ages four to eight. Let's Meet Officer Frank is a must for every child's classroom, library and book collection! Currently, this book is being used by many Elementary schools and law enforcement agencies as a way to introduce children to police officers.
