Format: Paperback
AS THE MOTHER OF AN 8 YEAR OLD CHILD WITH MODERATE LEARNING DIFFICULTIES, THIS BOOK IS BRILLIANT. BRIGHT COLOURFUL PICTURES ENCOURAGES CHILDREN TO EXPLORE THE PICTURE AND GIVES EASY CLUES TO CERTAIN WORDS WITHIN THE TEXT.NICE,LARGE PRINT FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY READING AND SENTENCES REPEAT THROUGH OUT THE STORY, ENCOURAGING THE CHILD TO REMEMBER THE WORDS, MY SON DOES NOT YET HAVE A READING AGE BUT WITHIN 5 WEEKS OF READING THIS BOOK AT BEDTIMES, HE CAN NOW REMEMBER COMPLETE SENTENCES. HE LOVES THIS BOOK AND ALWAYS ASKS FOR IT, I WOULD RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK TO ANY MOTHER WHOSE CHILD IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH READING. THIS AUTHOR KNOWS WHAT CHILDREN WANT TO SEE AND READ, I CAN NOT WAIT FOR MORE AND NEITHER CAN MY SON.

My little boy loves this book. He reads along with us all the time especially when he can make the sounds of the vehicles.

The pictures keep him intereseted too, giving him many things to point out as we read along.

This book is great from the ages of 20months right up to teaching your children to read.

Format: Paperback
Our son Oscar loves this book! He's also a fan of Choo-Choo by the same team (Margaret Mayo and Alex Ayliffe) - plenty of vibrant, bold double-page illustrations and fun words to learn too when he's older.

As a parent (Dad!) I find this series great fun too, which is more than can be said for some other books we've purchased. There's so much to see on each page here I suspect this book will not go out of favour for some time, making it great value too!

Finally, as vehicle books go this one is particularly good as it goes beyond the standard cars and trucks and introduces more unusual contraptions (such as a train crane lifting a fallan tree off the tracks, a moutain rescue helicopter, a lifeboat - and more).

Excellent stuff, cannot recommend it highly enough.

Format: Paperback
This is my son's favourite bedtime read. It looks at all different types of rescue vehicles, with a great rhyming text and the perfect length for bedtime reading. As with Dig Dig Digging (another book by the same authors), this has a repetitive area of text that allows the child to join in, which they seem to love.

Definately a fav in our house!

Bought this after my 2 year old loved "dig,dig,diggers" for months and we fancied a bit of variety to read to him so bought a selection of books by the same author/illustrator. "Emergency" is now a firm favourite with my son, we read it repeatedly and both my husband and I enjoy doing so. The illustrations are colourful and engaging and have lots of detail so you can "look for the dog" or "count the cars" or "find the red one" etc, adding to the enjoyment and educational experience. The pages with all the vehicles on at the beginning and end are a great opportunity to discuss which one is your child's favourite and what they have learned about them. Overall I am delighted I bought it. It isn't quite as brilliant as "dig, dig, diggers" but comes pretty close.

Another great book by Margaret Mayo. Really simple to read, some nice repetition and fantastically illustrated (by Alex Ayliffe). We already have the 'Choo Choo Clickety Clack' book and it has been read til it's dropping to pieces so I thought we'd try another one of Margaret Mayo's books and we haven't been disappointed.

It holds my son's 3 yr old's attention from start to finish and at the end we always get "again again" so I have found these books amazing and really educational as he had learnt about lots of different emergency vehicles which he may not have seen in everyday life where we live. Will definately be buying some more of her books - 'Snap' next!

My 2 year old loves this book - his daddy is a fire-fighter so anything with nee nor's is a big bonus! He is mesmerised by the stories and even joins in with the words as they repeat the last line on every page.

We also have got Dig Dig Digging and Choo Choo Clackerty Clack which he also loves us to read to him before bed time.

Parents might find it a little annoying after a while when you have to read them EVERY night!!

Definitely worth buying for any little emergency service Enthusiasts!

This book has lots of bright coloured pictures of diffrent emergency vehichles, with lots of other things going on in the background for us to spot! If your child likes fire egines, police cars etc like my son this is a must have for their book collection!
