Book Review :: Ambulance Ambulance! by Sally Sutton & Brian Lovelock

Ambulance Ambulance! - by Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock

"Bleep, bleep. Emergency! News just through: Crash, crash, there’s been a crash. Let’s go, crew! Nee nar nee nar. An exciting new collaboration from Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock, bestselling and award-winning creators of RoadworksDemolition and Construction."

Our homeschool Social Studies work sometimes has us looking at different occupations and how they contribute to our society.  Ambulance Ambulance! is a great lead-in to conversations about paramedics and hospital workers (we're prettttty familiar with the latter, these days).  Where we live (I'm guessing it's the same in most smaller communities?), paramedics are volunteer workers, so it just feels really nice to read a book honouring their incredible work.

Ambulance Ambulance! itself is filled with bright, bold illustrations and simple, to-the-point text.  The rhymes are simple and punchy, quickly conveying a sense of urgency that pairs perfectly with the content. My only difficulty is deciding whether to hold on to our copy, or donate it to our local hospital where we continue to receive so much wonderful care.  I'm leaning towards the latter.  Are book hampers a thing?  They should be! #mission.

Ambulance Ambulance! was released this month 👍  #shoutouttotheparamedics
