The air is lovely (for you not in the South!) and it's time to take to the skies!
Shiny new yellow copter is a rescue helicopter that is always ready to save the day and can go anywhere trains, cranes, and planes can’t reach. When the Ferris wheel at the amusement park breaks down and a teacher gets stuck at the top, yellow copter is the only one who might have a chance of rescuing her. Will yellow copter be able to fly that high and get the teacher down?
With a rollicking rhyme YELLOW COPTER begs to be read-aloud! Petrone's candy-colored illustrations make the book ideal for children just learning how to read and who adore Thomas the Tank Engine and Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, but want a new vehicle to read about. this is the perfect read-aloud for any fan of machines that are big, make loud noises, or fly—or all three at once. The book is the follow up to toddler favorite, Red Truck!
