Gr 3-6-- Designed as an instructional tool rather than a text to be studied independently, this collection of scenarios for role playing is intended to help children react when accidents happen. The book begins with common occurrences, such as nosebleeds and eye irritations, and advances through 14 medical emergencies, the most severe being electric shock, unconsciousness, and clothing on fire. In each instance, a common activity results in an accident and is followed by a list of the appropriate actions. These recommendations are sensible, often nonintrusive, and always include getting help in some form. A full-page, black-line drawing depicts each mishap. A large illustration shows what to do in each situation and reinforces the text's primary point, while small pictures accompany each item on the ``how to help'' list. They are minimally detailed but adequate. Situations are interesting and described in a conversational tone. A section on ``Using the phone to get help'' and a review quiz are also included. Similar in content and style to Harriet Gore's What to Do When There's No One but You (Prentice-Hall, 1974; o.p.), Kids to the Rescue provides a much-needed update to that title. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
