Synopsis

Rescue Vehicles by Margaret Parrish

Rescue Vehicles showcases the incredible machines used to save people in extreme situations, from fire trucks and ambulances to rescue helicopters and lifeboats. The most impressive features and feats of each rescue vehicle are highlighted, while action photos show rescue vehicles at work - on land, in the water and in the sky. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains specific terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each rescue vehicle. Find out about...The Bronto Skylift, a fire truck that can reach 72 metres into the air. The R44 helicopter, a police force's eye in the sky that tracks criminals using infrared technology. The Medtec Saturn, an ambulance that carries over 200 items of life-saving equipment. The P-3 Orion, an old military airtanker that is now used to blitz forest fires.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
