 What did you like about the book? The book comes in perfect time to teach the youngest of readers about the different members of our communities that keep us safe! The best part of this book is that every page of the book includes information about all the different types of helpers you might find in many different situations. Austin even uses the back and front of the covers on the inside to label different equipment that helpers use to do their job. The book even includes the animals that are helpers too!  I never even knew there was a Capuchin monkey helper. The illustrations use beautiful bright colors for the digitally drawn images. On every page there are very few sentences but instead the author labels different types of workers and their equipment based on the emergency situation they are helping in.
