Children's Book Grammar FAIL



From the "Mighty Movers: Emergency" board book, "Printed and bound in China". Somehow we have not one but two copies of this masterpiece. Could someone please check for typos before printing the next batch? Thanks in advance.

That's how the Brits use it. It's not standard American, but it's certainly not wrong.

Yeah, that's what Aunt Sarah said too. I guess I'm just a dopey American.

My problem with this page is since that is obviously unlike any ambulance your kids ever see, they are going to think that they can get medical help from the utility repair guy.

Europeans just say 'hospital' rather than 'the hospital'. In the same way they use the word 'holiday' instead of 'a vacation'. "I'm going on holiday this weekend."
