The illustrations in this book are so colorful and bright. The story is told using onemonepnoeia. The noises for the helicopter taking off were, "flup flup flup." The teacher being saved said, "Wheeeee!" The main idea of the book was that helicopters are the perfect flight unit for steady air jobs. I recommend using this book for preschoolers or kindergarteners. ( )

A yellow rescue helicopter is the hero of the day when a teacher is stuck at the top of a Ferris wheel. ( )

This is a board book adaptation of a 2015 picture book.

When a teacher gets stuck at the top of a ferris wheel, yellow copter comes to the rescue. The story is sprinkled with a few simple vocabulary words, "tail boom" and "rotors" and some fun helicopter sounds. The simple rhyming text is just right for toddlers and preschoolers. The digital illustrations are minimal and have plenty of color, albeit in soft pastels. Yellow copter is a soft yellow against a blue background with red highlights, while more colors burst out in the fair and other scenery.

The board book is a sturdy 6x5 rectangle and has standard chunky pages and tough binding.

Verdict: Toddlers who are into transportation will happily cuddle up for this simple story. If you're looking to expand your transportation or board book sections, this is a good choice.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451469917, Hardcover)

When a teacher gets stuck at the top of the Ferris wheel at the fair, cranes and planes can’t reach her. The only one who might have a chance is Yellow Copter!

With a rollicking rhyme and candy-colored illustrations, this is the perfect read-aloud for any fan of machines that are big, make loud noises, or fly—or all three at once.
