The Lovereading4Kids comment

There are 60 plus pages of information about different kinds of emergency vehicles in this attractive little book. Fire, police, ambulance and search and rescue vehicles from across the world, including lots in the UK, are included, represented in clear photos and described in easy to read but useful short sentences of text. The spread on airport crash tenders tells readers why they are needed, how they are used and how fast they can go, and also includes extra details such as notes on their all-wheel drive and powerful sprays. With contents page, index and glossary, this is an excellent first reference book, full of interesting, well-presented information. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

What does a tow truck do? How does an ambulance work? When do we use firetrains? My Little Book of Emergency Vehicles answers all of these questions and many more. See hard-working vehicles in action and also learn about unusual rescue vehicles such as amphibious trucks and firefighting aircraft.

Perfect for reluctant readers, this book will hold the interest of young children and encourage them to find out more about these impressive vehicles and the amazing jobs they do.

Reviews

'children, even reluctant readers, will be instantly drawn to the big colourful pictures of emergency vehicles'

'Even reluctant readers will be instantly drawn to the big colourful pictures of emergency vehicles - there are fire engines, police cars, ambulances and many not so well known vehicles, from all around the world. Simple, easy-to-understand text is perfect for KS1 children to read alone or with a little help; more detailed information is given in fact boxes.'

'With contents page, index and glossary, this is an excellent first reference book, full of interesting, well-presented information'
