This book is a lifesaver. Literally. Everytime I hear about a child saving an adults life by calling 911 not only am I impressed, but scared. Scared that my 4 year old wouldn't be able to do that. Thanks to this book, I'm confident that in the event of an emergency and my son has to call 911, he will do it successfully!
This book was bought by my mother as a gift to my son for his birthday. My husband is a firefighter and all the firehouses have this book. My son loved the pictures and of course the dialing pad. All the numbers make a beep noise however once you dial 9-1-1 in order, sirens sound and a mans voice comes on saying there is an emergency and, "Let's Go!" We love role playing like the stories in the book and having him use the book as a phone and dial 911.
You can get this book new or used for a very good price. I can't remember the last time I spend under $5 on a book but there are several places online that where you can buy it for $1 and up.
