Ideal as a simple Beginner Reader book, the book gives brief, easy-to-follow, details of the many varied tasks that firefighters do as part of their daily work. The illustrations bring these facts vividly to life.
I liked the fact that the author also took the opportunity to introduce a few fire safety tips for little ones - such as STOP, DROP and ROLL if your clothes catch fire, and never to play with matches. Adding a cute puppy to the scenes, as the fire house mascot, should also ensure that younger children do not find the idea of any of the details or activities too scary.
This is a book that is educational for little ones, with important messages told in a fun format. It should help to teach young children how valuable our fire fighters are, and how important their duties are in helping to keep us all safe.
Children most of them love to watch a fire truck go by an also will be very excited if they find out that one will be by to visit their school and class.
This story if you take the time and really go over each page with your child slowly an explain each page to them as you read to them, because just reading to them it can just go in their ears but they don't really know what you have read unless you take a few minutes and go over the picture and explain just what is going on in that picture.
You as the reader will also learn many things about what a fireman goes threw each day, even if it is in these kind of pictures because they are really down to earth for the young minds to see, they are bright an clear. So please take it slow and help your children and your friends children to learn some thing that is very important that they need to know for their own safety an they one day might just have to use it for the safety of their friends and them self thankful to the way you explain this wonderful that Joyce Mitchell has put out there.
Please let the author know how much you enjoyed this book and that you will let others know so that your friends will also get this book and read to their children. Would you please also make a review about the book it helps the authors to really see how people care about their books and want to get it out.

Hooray for children's author, Joyce Mitchell! She's written another adorable, educational story. This time she tells young readers all about what firefighters do. For example, they save people. They clean and cook at the fire station. What special safety equipment to they wear? Did you know they fight forest fires? Small children will be sure to love this wonderful story. It's sure to show them why firefighters are truly heroes. I highly recommend this story.

"FIREHOUSE 3: Duties of a Firefighter" is another great children's book by multi-talented Author Joyce Mitchell. I have had the opportunity to read and review several of her books and she never ceases to amaze me with the varied topics that she addresses. I am equally impressed with the learning tools she provides for her young reading audience.
In this book, she elaborates on the many duties and responsibilities that firefighters face on a daily basis. When they aren't putting out fires, Author Joyce Mitchell aptly explains how they keep themselves busy with a wide variety of other challenges. The colorful illustrations by Jay Erandika really add to the enjoyment of this reading pleasure. I know my young grandchildren will definitely enjoy this book!
