A 2001 Children’s Literature Choice Every day, brave firefighters come to our rescue. When the fire alarm sounds, men and women put on their uniforms, slide down the firehouse pole, jump in their big red trucks, and rush to save our lives. From the minute the fire alarm rings, the day of a firefighter is filled with adventure – and danger. Wherever there is a fire, we can be sure that firefighters will always be there!
This is a perfect book for firefighter lovers! The look at lots of different aspects and tools of a firefighter’s work from A to Z is fun as well as informative and the rhyming cadence keeps things upbeat and moving along.
