What Kind of Book is My Little Red Fire Truck

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

This is a really cool concept for a fire truck book, that takes you through the process of getting a fire engine ready for work step by step (all of which little readers can help with!) You’ll check the oil lever, secure the ladder, clean and stow the tools, use the radio, start the iginition and ring the fire bell (among other things). This is quite a large book, as an FYI—the size of a picture book and about 2 inches thick, and if you aren’t careful some of the pieces could be easily lost.
