to the Rescue, is the cute story of a group of preschoolers who set out to
save the day! When a pizza truck suddenly gets swallowed up by the
‘deeper-then-you-think’ mud puddle, in the school
playground, a police car comes to help him. When he too gets stuck
in the mud, more vehicles come to help, only to find that they too are in
a sticky situation! Have no fear, however, the preschoolers are here! With
the use of their tools, shovels and sand, and rocks and bricks, and rubber
bands, and Popsicle sticks, the preschoolers go to work helping out the
poor vehicles. Slowly, one at a time, the preschoolers manage to remove
each vehicle out of the deep mud. However, they don’t stop there,
because the preschoolers realize that more trucks could become stuck.
Using their tools, and a lot
of imagination, the children
soon make the mud puddle disappear.
This is a cute
book for ages 2-6 to enjoy. The illustrations, by Will Hillenbrand, are
very bright and colorful, sure to capture a young ones full attention.
