“This delightful book not only engages the reader through its wonderful story and illustrations, but it also provides valuable information to children at the same time."

Certainly from my perspective, the publication and distribution of this book would serve a far reaching educational purpose for the Australian community filling this void in children’s literature.”

"Amelia Harrison was invited to speak and present at our annual national conference. Amelia spoke eloquently and gave insight into her industry. Toby the Teddy and 'Is this an Emergency? Ambulance' book has proven popular among our guests who value the importance of the message within. We look forward to reading this wonderful book regularly with the children in our care. 
Amelia had our audience enthralled with much interest in the core message.
We look forward to working together with Amelia in the future as our conference travels around the country."

"As a fully trained Primary School Teacher and Australian Teacher Advisor, we are always looking for new ways to help teach our young children the need to be safe, to know when an emergency occurs, and how to deal with it. Using this beautifully presented visual stimulus, 'Is This an Emergency?' gives us the opportunity to show children, at their grade level exactly how to do that. A definite keeper, and a book that should be implemented throughout all primary schools around the world."

"This delightful book, is sure to not only entertain little ones, but also educate them about emergencies, and what to do if one should arise. The book is beautifully written and the illustration is magical.
“Is This An Emergency? Ambulance “ should be in every household."

“Little Lifesavers Education is extremely excited for the publication of this book which is overdue in the emergency education field, with nothing similar on the market. This is a fantastic resource for parents and children that can ultimately save lives. Not only is this book educational, it is also beautifully written with exquisite illustrations. Little Lifesavers Education strongly believes that ‘Is This An Emergency? Ambulance” should be a staple in every household and classroom and applauds the authors on this exceptional book. We also personally look forward to using this book as a resource in our programs!”

“I see several ways in which this book will benefit the community. Firstly, it may elevate children’s understanding of emergency services to reduce hoax calls, which results in wasting resources to hinder community safety. Secondly, it will assist in reducing morbidity and mortality of patients experiencing accidents in the home. Essentially, this book will save lives."

“As a mother of two young children, I am constantly striving to educate my kids as to the dangers and realities of life in an age-appropriate, non-threatening way. I am often amazed at the details they recall when it comes to stories, and so was delighted to come across the tale of Toby the Teddy as he works out how to identify emergency situations in very familiar settings. This book enables parents the opportunity to teach their children how to respond in a variety of situations and help them to retain the necessary information. A story we will read again and again!”

"This book is one of a kind, there are not many books out there in Australia that focus on the 000 number, when you asked most children what the emergency number is, they associate it with 911. I believe this book will help many Australian children develop a better understanding of what to do in case of an emergency."

Anthea Georgiou
Primary School Teacher

“This book is great for junior class rooms. It is a wonderful whole-class book that fosters opportunities for learning and discussion amongst students. I believe it will teach kids a valuable life lesson and ultimately will help to save lives both at school and at home.”
