Editorial Reviews

Review

"A concise text and clear, colorful pictures explain the different ways fires are fought." -- -- ALA Booklist

"Conveys the excitement and teamwork necessary in fire-fighting." -- -- School Library Journal

From the Back Cover

The alarm sounds. Fire! Fire! Big trucks roll out of the firehouse and race to the scene. Out come the soft hoses and aerial ladders. Whether the fire is in the city or in the country, on the waterfront or in a deep forest, firefighters are on the scene in moments, ready to attack the blaze.

My 5.5 yr old son LOVES this book! He renewed it for four weeks at the school library before they made him turn it in, and then cried about it. The book teaches kids about different kinds of fire fighters. Most of us think of a fire fighters down at the fire station but it also encompasses smoke jumpers, water front fire fighters and more. I found it interesting to read to him too.

My son judges a bookstore or library by number and quality of fire engine books. This book is our favorite. There is information in this book that is not in any other book we've read (and we have read many) and still it is an easy read. Gail Gibbons does a great job packing information into 4-8 year old bite sized pieces.

I purchased this book for my 3 year old son with the intent to acquaint him with exactly what firefighters and their apparatus do.
I recently joined our local volunteer fire department and my son has been afraid of the sirens of our nearby station for a while now. This book was a big hit with him and me!
This book organization of this book gives it 4 sections for paid (city), volunteer (country), forest and harbor departments. My son loves the illustrations and sits and listens intently to the descriptions. Each page contains illustrations displaying smoke detectors, hoses, personnel, and fire equipment that are all well labeled.
This is a must buy if you need a firefighters book for your child!

This is a replacement. We love the pictures and her choice and selection of words.
The Firefighter told us "it was the real deal" but, of course my kids had already judged it as such!

By Janet Morlock on July 8, 2013
Format: Paperback
The content is a little dated. Stop, Drop, and Roll now includes covering the face. 911 is fairly universal and not just in "some areas". A good concept, but needs to be updated.
