Kids to the Rescue!
illustrated by Marina Megale
This simple first aid book helps kids think wisely in an emergency. Well illustrated and easy to
understand, it describes accident situations that children are likely to find themselves in. The
paramedic/teacher author team provides step-by-step directions for handling such common
problems as cuts, bloody noses, stings, electric shock and burns.
One of our most popular children’s books, Kids to the Rescue! opens with a note for
parents explaining how children can practice the first aid techniques. It concludes with a first aid
quiz and instructions on calling 9-1-1 and other emergency numbers. The back cover has an index
so kids can easily find the page of instructions they need.
Expanded and revised to cover HIV-safety.
McGraw-Hill includes Kids to the Rescue! in its fourth grade reading curriculum and the California Department of Education has also approved several Parenting Press publications including Kids to the Rescue! for supplemental use in California public schools, one of the largest school markets in the world.
