Bella’s Broken Leg (Grades 1-5)
When Zoe and her family come to live in 911 Headquarters, Zoe can’t get enough of the ambulance and the hardworking Emergency Medical Technicians.
Written for Grades 1-5, this book takes a chapter book format with more details of what EMTs do in a real-life situation with broken bones for older children. Follow along as the EMTs assess the case, prepare the patient for her ride in the ambulance, and transport her to the hospital.
When Zoe goes on her first call with two EMTS, Josh and Nicole, she’s not sure if she remembers the first three rules of being an EMT. Her problems continue when she doesn’t have time to ask what they may need to help the injured girl.
Will Zoe be able to follow the three rules and help the injured girl? Does she have what she needs to be an EMT, or will her dreams of helping people be lost forever?
Great Way to Talk to Kids about Medical Emergencies!
It’s Zoe to the Rescue when Bella falls from a big tree. And in a simple but memorable way, you learn along with both Zoe and Bella the things you should always remember in an emergency. Plus, with bright and cheery pictures, Bella’s Broken Leg normalizes things like having to call 911 when you’re at the park and the fact that pants have to be cut off a broken leg. What a great way to teach your kids about ways to be prepared for and respond to medical emergencies! I’m excited to see more in the Zoe to the Rescue series–and so are my kids!
