Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Whenever there is an emergency, a specialized vehicle is ready to get help to the scene as quickly as possible. From police cars and fire trucks to ambulances and rescue boats, these vehicles ensure that trained personnel can respond to emergencies on land and sea. Part of Scholastic's "Discover More" series, this book hooks readers immediately with bold-type, easy-to-read text and action-filled photos. Authors Arlon and Gordon-Harris capitalize on young readers' interest in fire trucks and ramp up the excitement with details about emergency vehicles most people rarely see, such as super scoopers that take water from the ocean and fly over wildfires, air-sea rescue teams, life boats, and fire boats. They give the number of crew members it takes to operate each piece of equipment, the vehicle's speed, and its purpose. Colorful, close-up pictures of the vehicles at work complement the text. Images include male and female first responders from around the world, and show that different places require different vehicles. Bicycles, horses, and even Segways can be used as emergency vehicles! Educators and parents alike understand the fascination children have with emergency vehicles and will welcome this engaging book designed for emergent readers. The eye-catching photographs, detailed information, clever design, and sturdy pages all work together to create a book that will stand up to the many repeated readings it's sure to garner. This book includes a table of contents, a glossary, and an index that introduce young children to these basic components of informative texts while building vocabulary. This book also includes a code to download a free digital companion book with videos and activities. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis
