School Library Journal - 05/01/2015 Toddler-PreS—Yellow Copter is not just any helicopter. He is a rescue vehicle. When a Ferris wheel gets stuck with a teacher sitting at the top, only Yellow Copter can retrieve her and return her to her class on the ground. Nice and easy, the reliable machine does his job. The spare and simple rhyming text introduces important copter words like roters, winch, and harness. The graphic-style cartoon illustrations and catchy cadence will draw the attention of young viewers, who are learning to hear words and repeat sounds. The vivid yellow of Copter stands out against pale blue skies, like a warming sun on a beautiful blue day. VERDICT Toddlers will enjoy this story of a hero and a helper.—Mary Hazelton, formerly at Warren & Waldoboro Elementary Schools, ME - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
