Reviews for Avi the Ambulance to the Rescue!

"We first met Avi, the little ambulance, when he went to school and learned the important skills he would need (Avi the Ambulance Goes to School, 2015). In his second story, he has the opportunity to practice these lessons. It is a busy day in the garage. First, Avi's big sister Maya is called; then other vehicles leave to help those in distress. Avi is frustrated at being left behind, but he is sent to headquarters to get supplies for his unit. On the way back to the garage he passes an apartment building where the alarm has gone off. Almost everyone leaves except Yofi the cat, who is stranded on a ledge. Avi drives under the window so Yofi can jump to safety. This new series highlights the work of Magen David Adom (Red Star of David), the Israeli rescue and emergency service. The proceeds of the series will help MDA do its work. The story here, while simple, is a reminder that everyone can play a vital role. The rescue scene is mildly exciting, but not scary. The illustrations provide female role models in the work of saving lives. The book also makes the point that having (and getting) supplies may not be exciting, but it is necessary."
