Go to School with Avi!

Meet Avi the Ambulance! Avi dreams of being a life-saving ambulance just like his Mom, Dad, and big sister Maya. So what’s a young, ambitious ambulance to do? Go to school, of course!

Avi learns all sort of important skills from the ambulance teacher at school: How to zig-and-zag, zoom-and-stop, and, of course, how to treat patients well and drive gently. This first book of the new Avi the Ambulance series will charm young readers, and give them a taste of Israel and the Jewish value of helping others.
