Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of Enslow's "Transportation and Communication" series, this volume describes vehicles from police cars to helicopters, emergency procedures on land and sea, and jobs resulting from police and military rescue work. The author, who does not appear to have any special expertise in this field, has introduced some human interest in her opening chapter by relating a search for two lost toddlers at a campsite. She goes on to list various rescue vehicles, touch briefly on historical examples, and cover improvements in automobiles, ambulances, and helicopters through the years. A great deal of emphasis is placed on brand and corporate names of the vehicles' makers. A little too often, mention is made of controlling supposedly wrongdoing crowds and pursuing and apprehending lawbreakers, including the use of electric shock guns. The pedestrian prose is choppy and over-simplified, making it rather boring even for a reluctant reader who may be attracted to the subject matter. Although chapters are short, it might be helpful in some cases to provide space or subheadings for greater clarity. The book is illustrated with photos, the historical ones being of the greatest interest. Possibly useful as a limited reference book, this volume will probably appeal mostly to readers already interested in police and rescue work. A very short timeline and glossary are provided along with a BIBLIOgraphy and two Internet addresses. 2002, Enslow, Talcroft

    I really like this book

    This is the a really good book. The author came to my school. She talked to three policemen,a helicopter pilot, and a 911 lady. She told us about researching books. That is why it is a good book. Its like you are really there.

    Exciting things police do

    This book tells many things I did not know. It tells about the exciting and helpful things that police officers do. It tells about police motorcycles and police helicopters. I liked the part about the first helicopter and about the helicopters today. I did not know police officers still use horses. It tells about D.A.R.E. I will be in D.A.R.E. next year. Read it and you will like it. You may want to be a police officer after reading the book

    A Great Police Book

    This book was all about police vehicles. It showed the police rescuing people. It had lots of pictures of police helping people. It tells about the ways that police help to keep us safe. I liked the part about 911 and the people who answered the 911 calls. I read the book two times and my mom reads it to my little brother almost every night. I really like it.
