Firefighters hold a perennial fascination for children. Perhaps it’s the huge red trucks that always announce their presence – perhaps the fun white and black Dalmatians that trot along for the ride. Or maybe it’s the bravery of the firefighters themselves.
Whatever the reason, the fact remains: children love firefighters. So, here’s a book that will take them step by step through a day in a firefighter’s life.
Composed primarily of pictures, Firefighters literally shows the ins and outs of firefighting – the maintenance necessary to keep the trucks and equipment in tip-top shape, how firefighters can spend their leisure time around the fire department, and finally firefighters on site.
Conclusion. I think it likely that kids would enjoy this book.
