Well illustrated and easy to understand, this simple first aid book helps kids think calmly and wisely in a number of situations in which they are likely to find themselves. The authors—one a teacher and the other a firefighter and paramedic—provide step-by-step instructions for handling such common problems as cuts, bloody noses, stings, electric shock, and burns. The book opens with a note for parents explaining how children can practice the first aid techniques, and concludes with a first aid quiz and instructions on calling 9-1-1 and other emergency numbers. This revised edition also includes information on HIV safety.
