This is the Firefighter (Picture Book)



Released March 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

This tribute to firefighters features a rhymed, simple text as it follows a fire call. The alarm bell sends the truck and crew out to an apartment fire where they will have to rescue some families and animals before the fire can be extinguished.

The big, bold illustrations includes details on the firemen's gear, the approach to the situation inside the burning building and how all the units (the pumper truck, hook and ladder, and ambulance) work together to save lives and douse the flames.

If you have a little firefighter in your household, this read aloud book should be a big hit. Better still, if mom, dad, a relative or family friend works for the fire department, this picture book will give your youngster an idea of what the job involves.

Also, be sure to mention that the firefighters are not all males. There is a woman on the crew, so ask your child to look for her as you read the story.
