An exciting and modern reference book about emergency vehicles for emergent readers.
Emergency Vehicles is full of facts and engaging pictures of rescue vehicles hard at work. Big, annotated photos reveal exciting details of how fire trucks, ambulances, police cars, motorbikes, and helicopters really work. Alongside are explorations of more unusual vehicles that do spectacular jobs, from superscoopers to fireboats. The book highlights how team work between vehicles and crews is vital, for example in an hour-by-hour airport emergency. Clear layouts, simple words, and word-picture relationships make these books perfect for children first encountering information books and reading. Vetted by literacy experts.
