Billy spends time with his “second family” at the Floral Avenue firehouse where his mother works, and dreams of growing up to be a firefighter just like her.
This is a darling story. It tells the story through the eyes of a little boy. His mom seems to be his hero. I enjoyed that even though she worked hard being a firefighter, her son was still so involved in her life. He often joined her at the fire station and she was able to give a presentation at his school. It was an informative story about what firefighters do and how they keep safe while they are hard at work.
