Reviews - What do customers think about Impatient Pamela Calls 9-1-1 (Impatient Pamela series)?
Very Helpful. Aug 12, 2008
My daughter loved this book, we read it also every night when we first got it. It was extremely educational but still very entertaining at the same time. She's 5 so she asks a lot (I mean a lot) of questions while we read the book which was very good. We really enjoyed this book.
Wonderful story Jul 21, 2008
Surprisingly, this book held the attention of both my 3 & 4 year old boys. They request to have it read to them over and over again and then we spend time reviewing the various scenarios of when it is appropriate to call 911. Little Pamela is someone they can connect with as she is impatient, eager to help, and quick at learning a responsible behavior.
All children should read this book Feb 1, 2001
Absolutely fun, colorful, and still managed to convey the importance of 911. My children especially liked Pamela's "whacky" hair from playing in the leaves.
Teaches without being scary Feb 7, 2000
This book was great for teaching my son about calling 911 without scaring him with all kinds of terrible accidents. The character was engaging and the illustrations lots of fun. The book facilitated a great discussion about learning our address and telephone number, which he now spouts at every opportunity! Thanks to the author and illustrator from this mom.
Great!! Very Fun, & educational Jun 30, 1999
Great tool for me to use during storytimes when promoting safety. This is a great tool when doing PR's for our EMS service. It helps in getting the information on not just dialing 911. It tells the children they need to know the address they are at and what their telephone number is. The illustrator is great. The children love to look for meow-man. I like the peace sign the EMT's are giving Martin. Thanks to the author and illustrator.
