Written by Australian based Critical Care Paramedic, Amy Gomes after struggling to find content for her children to read about her profession. The book is suitable for ages 2-8, with intentionally realistic (but age appropriate) illustrations which aim to help reduce medical anxiety through familiarity. Excitingly, the hardcover version of the book also features a filmed book reading with Greg Page (Original Yellow Wiggle and Cardiac Arrest Survivor) and an Auslan component with interpreter Mikey Webb.
Additionally, $1 from every hardcover book (excludes ebook) sold will go to Greg’s charity Heart of the Nation, and for every 1000 hardcover books sold, an AED will be donated - buying this book could literally help save a life! There is so much more to the book; including an illustrated glossary, a broad range of characters from many diverse cultures and abilities, an educational component on how/when to call 000 and linked audio to a practice 000 call. Illustrated by the wonderful Pia Leo.
