View Full Version : First Aid reference book

02-02-2010, 03:30 PM
Hi, can anyone recommend a really good first aid book/manual for children. I went on my course a while ago now so would really like a book on the shelf to have as a refresher & for quick reference if needed - both for use with my own children & mindees.
I found one in the library - 'First Aid for Children & babies fast' which looked quite good with lots of clear pictures to follow the treatment of injuries etc. Have had a look on Amazon & there are loads!!
Would appreciate any recommendations before I purchase.
Many thanks

I got a great one on my first aid course last weekend, but its by the people who do the training. May be able to order one from them, its a company called CJ Associates. It has pics and descriptions to help you if necessary

I just did my first aid course and got a great book. You can also buy it. Its from Devon Childminding Association, if you google them you can get it from their shop.

I have the one you looked at... First Aid fast for babies and children. Got mine from Red Cross online but think it's cheaper on Amazon
