Very simple, but well done for the youngs one. The pictures are good, the information are basic but interesting and all is well explain and adapted to the targeted public. Nothing extraordinary but good!

Wonderful photographs showing various rescue vehicles. The text was easy to understand for my young charges as I read this to them. They wanted to spend a lot of time looking at the photos as I read basic facts about the vehicles and why there are different ones. The kids are all 4 and knew about different rescue vehicles and were very interested in this book. I liked the glossary at the back to go over with the kids. A great book to use in a primary classroom when teaching about community helpe ...more

Nice size book with great photos of police vehicles , fire vehicles and medical vehicles.
Talks about what is an emergency. What happens. Step by step introduction to the rescue vehicles.
Talks about what they are responsible for and how they act for the good of the people. There is a glossary at the back with words used in emergency conditions. Has book and websites recommendations for further study. Children should not be scared after learning what great community rescue responders do for us.
Simple but effective book. Read it with my nephew who is mad about rescue vehicles. He loved looking at the pictures and talking about all the different things that he could see in the vehicles. He was fascinated by how the vehicles in the book looked different to those that we have here in the UK. His favourite was the fire truck.

The book is good for teaching the younger ones about different rescue vehicles.

Very well written for young children to understand. Uses actual pictures rather than illustrations, which will make it more "real" for youngsters. Also like the glossary at the end.

Great pictures! The definitions highlighted are also in the back of the book for quick study. Great for a quiz.Types of rescue vehicles are explained and why different situations need certain vehicles. Good consideration of safety issues.

A great book for early elementary school readers!!!

Many thanks to Norwood House Press and NetGalley for a delightful read.
