I am an art teacher and the father of a four year old little boy who has fallen in love with this book. Not just because it is about big fire trucks, but because it is a wonderfully illustrated synopsis of an admirable man doing his job well along with a team of firefighters that represent other cultures and genders without making it seem forced (unlike public education). This is one of the finest children's books we have purchased and it is because of the wonderful detail of the illustrations and how they compliment the writing. This book could stand on it's own without the writing (Good Dog Carl) just because of the illustrations, but it is wonderful to see art and text compliment each other so well n children's books. Buy this book now if your boy (or girl) loves trucks, pictures, and a story that weaves the two together in a magical way. You'll see!

I agree with the other reviews. My 2 year old will be getting many years enjoyment out of this book. I especially like it because it keeps his rapt interest for much longer than most 'pre-school' aged books, but is simple enough for a toddler. But my absolute favorite part, is the fact that Our Hero, Fireman Frank, has lunch and a nap as part of the book. With an active toddler, you need all the reinforcement you can get for those sticky areas!! :-) Great role model!

My five year old son loves firefighting books. I am a volunteer firefighter/EMT in NY so my son always has a lot of questions. This book is fine without explanations. My son always has to know, "Is that how you do it Daddy?"

This book stays close to reality with the help of Big Frank! Big Frank is a very likeable character for my son. I first started to read this book to him at 4 and he has loved it since.

Format: Paperback
This book is great for reading to Toddlers, and self reading elementary school students up to at least 9 years old. Longer than you think it would be, it gives you an example of the daily routine of a fireman. Lots of fun and educational too. The fireman is full of personality due to great writing and wonderful detailed illustrations!

This story book was a little too long for my 2 year old to pay attention. It jammed so much info into the story that a young child may not want to listen to all of it. But my 5 year old listened and seem to enjoy it.

I bought this book for my 3 year old grandson and he is always asking me to read it to him. He just loves it! The wording in the book is meant more for ages 6 and up (in my opinion) however, I just "modify" the words a little for my grandson. The pictures are great and very detailed. Excellent book!

My 21 month old son loves firetrucks, and he kept insisting we read the one firetruck book we had, a Richard Scarry story with a bunch of bumbling firefighters. Cute book, but it got old quickly and wasn't really teaching him anything about firefighting. I'm glad I found Big Frank's Fire Truck on Amazon because this book has been terrific! It's a real story that shows what firefighting is really about, and my son loves it for the great pictures. He'll happily sit and listen to this book over and over again (and I'm happy to read it over and over), and it's taught him a lot of new words (hook-and-ladder, off-road, etc) and new concepts (red light means stop, helping people). Big Frank also does things like eat food and take naps and hug his kids, which are all great for my son to see.

In short, this book is terrific. I highly recommend it for firetruck-obsessed toddlers!

I have a 4 year old fireman-wanna-be who loves this book. It has 2 rescue scenes, one a car crash and the other a forest fire. But it also show life in the firehouse. Totally age appropriate for 4+. I brought this book to school when I was a guest reader. The teachers loved the book too and wanted a copy so I ordered another for them. It includes a section on fire safety too. Totally recommend. A+
