5.0 out of 5 stars Great First Aid Book 7 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
I got this book as we have recently had a baby and wanted to have something to hand to brush up on my First Aid skills. Since getting the book my husband has been on a First Aid course for babies and toddlers with the Red Cross and he was given this book as part of the course! It is very informative using lots of pictures as well as words to inforce what to do. There is also a helpful list on the edge of each page with quick steps on what to do in a situation. Very worth while getting if you need to know about First Aid for Children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have 22 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
Thankfully I've not yet had the need to refer to this book, but it looks EXTREMELY well laid out, with quick references to get to the page you need, excellent diagrams, and bullet points for each action needed to be taken. Topics seems very broad also, as you would expect. This item is therefore perfect for quick reference in any emergency situation.
