Kids to the Rescue! First Aid Techniques for Kids.
Boelts, Maribeth; Boelts, Darwin
This first aid manual teaches children to think wisely in an emergency and shows how to give first aid to themselves and others and to get help. An interactive format utilizes the adult as a child's helper and encourages the child to: (1) listen to a first aid situation as it is read by an adult; (2) look at an illustration and picture themselves in the situation; (3) tell the adult what they would do in that scenario; and (4) role play the steps on the first aid page enough times so that recall is automatic. Following a note to parents and teachers and a child's introduction, the manual provides instruction on common emergency situations: nose bleed, something in the eye, bleeding, broken bones, dog bite, snake bite, poisoning, insect sting, chemical burns in the eye, choking, electric shock, burns, unconsciousness, and clothing on fire. A section titled "Using the Phone to Get Help," a first aid quiz and an answer key are included. (LL)
