About this title


Using words to represent each letter of the alphabet is called the International Communications Alphabet (ICA). This alphabet is utilized by the United States military and throughout all civil aviation to clarify and strengthen communications.
Complete with the signal flags that the United States Navy has created to give each letter a color-coded shape, Chris Demarest's dynamic alphabet book honors the men and women who have served, are serving, or will serve in our armed forces -- and will thoroughly engage young

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-This brightly colored picture book introduces young readers to the International Communications Alphabet (ICA), which is used by the military and aviation industry. Each page presents the special ICA word and signal flag representing a letter along with a realistic illustration and one line of descriptive alliterative text using the featured letter. Packed with action and military terms, the text can be somber ("Unidentified American soldiers lie in rest at the Tomb of the Unknowns") and also controversial ("The Navy deploys a destroyer to help defend world peace"). Done in pastels, the illustrations pop right off the pages and depict many aspects of the military from soldiers and marines to medical personnel and journalists. An author's note provides information about the ICA, but children old enough to be curious about this subject will probably want more details and anecdotes. Still, this unique alphabet book will capture the attention of youngsters with military connections or interests.-Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA
