Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
Create a plan of action if a child should ever need to call 911 with the help of this volume in the "What If" series. The book provides tips for how children should handle calling 911 if an adult is not around or able to help in an emergent situation. Coupled with illustrated depictions, the book portrays different scenarios where kids may need to call 911 for emergency help, such as coming across a car accident or dangerous injury or witnessing a crime. The advice on each page includes speaking slowly to dispatchers, being specific with details and locations, and keeping oneself safe. Check the back of the book for additional helpful information such as what qualifies as a legitimate emergency, a glossary of terms, and further reading. The educational element in the "What If" series serves well for teaching kids about calling 911 at home or in the classroom. Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin
