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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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!

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.

My four year old loves anything and everything fire fighters. I couldn't resist purchasing a book by an author we love Gail Gibbons. The author does a wonderful job with illustrations that are fascinating and informative along with explanations that a young child can understand. This book does a great job explaining different types of fires and then gives information to the child about what to do in a fire emergency. My son loves this book.

I recommend this book for teachers. I teach kindergartners and found this book to be very informative and engaging for the students. The students had many questions about the vocabulary and the different fire fighting jobs. I also supplemented the book with the internet to show them the real situations described in the book.

We've had this book a week and I am pretty sure we've read it a hundred times. Firefighting details for the city, country, forest, and waterfront. My 3 year old fireman twins are enraptured every time. They are now running around cleaning up rubble and writing reports, two aspects of firefighting that were left out of many other books. They are really curious about the standpipe in apartment buildings that they use instead of a ground level hydrant. This was news to me and to them, and they want to go find one in a real building. For detail freaks!

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.
