Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–The author of Trucks (2003) and Cars (2006, both Marshall Cavendish) presents another winner, this time about community heroes. The tale begins with the Clang! Clang! Clang! of the alarm. The firefighters rush to get dressed and board their truck, along with Spot, the firehouse Dalmatian. Brief, pulsing, rhythmic text flows across the pages: Swing aboard! Hit the gas./Ladder truck roars, heads out fast./Sirens screech–Whee-ahh! Whooo!/Pumper truck comes zooming through! The crew arrives at the burning building, hauls out the hoses, and rescues the people trapped inside. After a tiring day, the team (including one female) heads back to the station for rest and food, until the bell sounds again. The digital, cartoon-style artwork is simple. Done in vibrant hues of predominantly primary colors, the pictures blend clean backdrops with more detailed views of the firefighters and their equipment. This attractive book on a popular topic will be a big hit at storytime and perfect for one-on-one sharing.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA

From Booklist

"Firefighters rush! Scurry! / Down the pole. Slide! Hurry!" Preschoolers will point at the bright pictures and act out the urgent, noisy rescue drama in this simple story. With a chanting rhyme and precise, brightly colored computerized illustrations, the double-page spreads show the fast action while the words imitate the clanging bells and screeching alarms ("Whee-ahh! Whooo!"), as the big, zooming truck rushes to put out the flames and save people from a burning house. Although the illustrator is different, this book will attract fans of Hubbell's previous tales about vehicles, encouraging them to take part in zooming, clanging play--and the louder the noise, the better.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is such a wonderful story time read! The rhyming pattern is easy to read aloud and flows well. There are some sound effects that you have to read versus 'sound' to make the rhyme work, but after a try or two I figured it out! :) And even without my added sound effects the bright pictures were enough to capture my little guys attention. The story itself is simple, going through the firefighters day along with a really well done fire rescue scene that gives a realistic, but not scary, scenario of what happens during a fire emergency.
So happy with this book, it's already been read several times over. It takes about 4 minuets to read all the way through, making it perfect for a quick before bedtime story.

It's cute; it rhymes; it's about firemen.... What's not to love? My son likes it, a lot, and it passes the parental test: I don't want to hurt the author after repeatedly reading it to my son.

I borrowed this book to read with my grandson. I thought the illustrations were a little simple and the story was too short. I'm glad I did not purchase it.

I was disappointed in the book content. My 3.5 year old son got bored after reading it a handful of times. He decided to place it with all the "baby" books.

My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have kids ranging from 1 to 5 years of age and this book kept all of them attentive. Perfect book for fire prevention awareness.

Such a fantastic book for small firefighting enthusiasts! It is colorful and great to help create "rescue missions" with my three year old grandson.
