My one and a half year old is crazy about trucks and loves this book. It's colorful and shows what a firetruck really does. (So many firetruck books do not show fires or the hose actually working! Don't worry, the cartoon pictures of fires are not scary.) I like that I'm not just looking at pictures of the trucks over and over with this one.

The layout is really cool. The entire cover and each page of this board book is shaped like a fire engine. My son likes to push it around as well as read it. Unfortunately the cool layout makes the binding really weak. The binding is shorter than the length of my pinky finger, extending only from the tailpipe to the bottom rung of the ladder. The book was in three pieces by the end of the first week. Now I did let my son play with the book, but I don't think he's especially destructive. We have well over 50 board books and a few paper ones too that he loves. We read them, and he "reads" and plays with them for several hours every day. This is one of only three that he's ripped/ broken the binding on. And by far this was the most quickly broken.

I would suggest getting this book if it is really cheap (check Scholastic's website too). Or if you are willing to tear it away from your child for safe keeping after each read. Otherwise, get I am a Train or I am a Construction Truck. Both have longer bindings and have held up a little better.

This is a cute little book. My son loves it. The only thing I don't like about it is that as you turn the pages, the puppy dog that is in the passenger seat of the fire truck starts to disappear, and it looks kind of strange. Pictures included to show what I mean.

My almost 3 year old son is OBSESSED with anything with wheels. He loves all these books. Also has the garbage truck version and the dump truck version. The book is a thick board book so he can pretend to "drive" the truck too. He likes the story and pictures. It has a cutout where the window is so he can stick his fingers in there to turn the pages. Cute book. Good price. Good gift.

I really love the structure and the stories in these cool little books, however, they do not stand up to a toddler's rougher reading style. I have a huge wide variety of board books, so I'm well aware of how much damage they will reasonably tolerate and how much they will not. These, unfortunately, all broke at the spine within one day of arrival. I've repaired them numerous times and they keep on breaking. The attachment at the spine is just way too weak and flimsy, held only by a very thin strip of paper. These should really be taken back to the printers and rebound because it is a shame to have such beautifully designed books, the contents of which my son absolutely adores, housed in such a fragile form.

My grandson loves the shape of the book, it's so well done, and the story is OK too....honestly, it was the shape that got my attention...We got him a couple of the vehicle, shaped books and he lines them all up like they are heading off somewhere.
What ever gets their attention first when it comes to books....the reading part comes after they reach for it :-)

We love these "I am A" books and have all of them. This one is our second fire truck book and it broke within a day. The binding is too short compared to the weight of the pages. Instead of getting a third, we put some electrical tape on the binding, which has kept it sturdy.

We live near a fire house. My husband used to volunteer so he's a bit of a fanatic and is teaching our 30-month-old daughter the different types of trucks. She gets all excited when she hears the alarm and must stop what she's doing to watch from the window as the trucks respond. So when I saw this book available for diaper points online I thought it'd be a good "tie in" and it has been. Daughter enjoys it and husband loves that the trucks are drawn and described correctly. Simple, but that's fine at this age. The ladder "handle" looks to me like it should be hinged - my only complaint is that I think that could have easily been done and kids would have a ball with it. Fun book nonetheless.
