Review: Mike, Carl, and Jan have what it takes to serve their town as police officers: the desire to help people, the skills to resolve difficult and sometimes dangerous situations, and the right equipment. Join these dedicated public servants as they respond to a traffic jam, lost child, and a crime scene. Will they get everything under control? This pleasant book makes a great resource for introducing the youngest readers to simple ideas in economics related to jobs and public service.
