Noisy siren fun!
I am not sure about you but I don't know any toddler who is not fascinated by emergency vehicles and, more importantly, the noise of their sirens - I know I was as a kid.
Emergency Rescue is the perfect 14 page board book for any pre-school kid who is wanting to find out more about emergency vehicles (although the pictures used were more American than British).
The book focuses on the different functions of each of the vehicles - fire engines carry hoses, are driven by firefighters who wear special uniforms or that emergency helicopters can be used in a variety of emergencies and that the rotors spin constantly to keep it in the air.
There is so much you can talk about on each page beyond what is actually written, making kids, and adults, think about different scenarios and which emergency service might be needed in that emergency.
Of course one of the parts that children will love is the noise button that you can press on each page, sounding a siren (yes M has found this and will play with it constantly - especially on the car when the last thing you want to hear is a siren!).
Personally I would have preferred the emergency vehicles used to be British ones that are more recognisable to children in the UK, however this might work out as a good thing as a discussion about how emergency vehicles look different in other countries could produce a lot of material.
Emergency Rescue can be purchased from Little Tiger for £6.99.
I was sent this book for the purposes of this review. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
