From New York Times–bestselling author and illustrator Brian Biggs comes the third board book in the collectible Tinyville Town series.
Taking us through a day in the life of another community hero, I’m a Police Officer shows readers what it’s like to be a policewoman protecting and serving the citizens of Tinyville Town, a cozy community where the people are kind, everyone says hello when they’re walking down the street, and all the townsfolk do their part to keep things running smoothly.
Brian Biggs’ read-aloud Tinyville Town series launched in 2016 with three books: the world-establishing picture book Gets to Work! and two board books, I’m a Veterinarian and I’m a Firefighter. In addition to I’m a Police Officer, it has grown to include the board book I’m a Librarian and a second picture book, Time for School!
With a nod to the busy world of Richard Scarry and the neighborhood feel of Sesame Street, the Tinyville Town series has become a favorite read for preschoolers. Using bold, comic-influenced art to illustrate a growing, thriving, diverse city full of interesting people, these books are ideal for story time and class discussions about occupations and community helpers.
"The book's pace, covering a day in the life of a police officer, lends itself well to a bedtime read. A worthy introduction to the concept of police officers." —Kirkus
"Bigg's crisp narration and peppy cartooning make this an upbeat intro to a job that, as the officer explains, requires that she "be ready for anything." —Publishers Weekly
