Rhymed verse and tidy watercolors describe how a fireman rescues Farmer Pig's cat and all the other animals in town. Ages 2-6.

PreSchool-Grade 1-Fireman Small, the only firefighter (and seemingly the only human) "this side of the bay," has a never-ending job. As soon as he pulls into station number nine, walks upstairs, gets into bed, and pulls the covers over his head, the alarm sounds, and he is called off to rescue yet another hapless cat, or rabbit, or hippopotamus in his unusually diverse community. He may be exhausted, but he is also greatly appreciated by those he protects. Young children will enjoy the drama of this plucky firefighter's rescue missions and the coziness of his dollhouselike quarters. Brown-skinned Fireman Small and his faithful Dalmation make a charming pair, and this simple rhyming story is endearing.

I've used this for years reading with pre-readers, mostly preschoolers, of all races. I love it that the race of Fireman Small is so ambiguous. Read morePublished 14 months ago by elizabeth harvin
