Community Helpers: Police Officers on Patrol

Police Officers on Patrol by Kersten Hamilton, with illustrations by R.W. Alley (Viking, 2009)

Here's a new picture book that is well-suited for a beginning look at what police officers do for preschool-aged children. Rhyming text and humorous cartoon illustrations work together to answer those common questions young children may have about the police and safety:

What do police officers do all day?

What should you do if you are lost or need help?

Who helps keep our town safe?

After each officer responds to a new situation, the police exclaim, "When people need help, we rock and roll!"
