All children should read this book

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

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

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.


I have two young boys who love this book! This is a great educational book for kids. It is also essential for all families. Pamela is fun for both parents and children.

This book is the best I've seen in a long time.

This book is a great asset for parents to be able to teach their children how to react in an emergency. It also provides parents an opening to discuss the different types of emergencies that there child may encounter. It is very important that our young people understand the process of calling 911. Children can learn to use the 911 system to help others in an emergency and also save themselves. The illustrator is to be commended also. Pamela is a delightful character with wonderful expressions. You can see her emotions in every picture. Her cat, Mr. Meowman is cute and playful. I read this book to my neighbors children and they had fun looking for him on every page. The three year old boy now knows his own address and told his little sister that she needs patience when she was clamoring for her milk. This book is a teaching tool...
