Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What is more exciting to a child than an ambulance or fire truck that goes whizzing by with its lights flashing and siren blaring? In this book children will find out more about one of their favorite rescue vehicles—the ambulance. Lights, sirens, horns and other parts of the ambulance are described. A tour of the inside of this vehicle shows the reader where supplies are kept as well as how patients are transported. Readers will see the equipment used by the EMTs. The colorful pictures show what happens from the time the ambulance is called out until it goes to the hospital with its patient. The author has allowed the young reader to "ride" along and experience the ambulance adventure without any harm. This book is simple, yet exciting and informative. There are some fun facts about ambulances included as well as a glossary to help with unfamiliar terms. This book could be used in the classroom to discuss community helpers. This book is part of the "Pull Ahead Books-Mighty Movers" series. 2004, First Avenue Editions/Lerner Publishing Group, Ages 4 to 8.
