This Is the Firefighter
Written by Laura Godwin & illustrated by Julian Hector
Thoughts from Grammy
I love this book! The catchy, rhyming verse keeps readers moving through the action with a sense of purpose, no hesitating as the firefighters rush into burning buildings to bring people out. In boldly drawn illustrations in primary colors with black and white the firefighters are shown moving through all their responsibilities from preparation, to fire fighting, to heading back to the station. There is a little dalmatian to be spotted on nearly every page. I love the way this book teaches respect for people in dangerous first-responder jobs.

My Mom is a Fire Fighter
Written by Lois G. Grambling & illustrated by Jane Manning
Thoughts from Mom of Boys
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.

  1. Push-Pull-Turn! Fire Truck to the Rescue! - A fascinating introduction to the world of a fire station! Fire Truck to the Rescue!, illustrated by Joe Bucco, gives a fascinating introduction to the world of fire stations, the vehicles, and the fire fighters. With flaps and tabs on every page, the book also features four special spreads that give an in-depth insight into the fire station, fire engine, fire helicopter, and firefighting practices. The fun rhyming story follows a firefighting mission that takes the fire crew out of the station, on the road, and to the emergency site to tackle a blazing building.

  2. Emergency - Rescuing, fetching, lifting and towing! Lift the flap to see each vehicle busy at work. Perfect for guessing, prediction and memory skills - and simply joining in!

  3. The Firefighter - The Book Snob Mom -

    Very cute illustrations and a great book for showing firefighters hard at work. I like that this book acknowledges that firefighters can be scared too (it's hard to be brave), for more sensitive readers the firefighter saves a puppy rather than a person trapped inside a burning building, and that it shows the long task of putting out a fire even after all of a building's occupants are saved.

  4. Tinyville Town: I'm a Firefighter - In I’m a Firefighter, we see what it’s like in a day in the life of a town firefighter. As soon as the fire alarm rings, Fireman Charlie is ready to go, go, go! When he’s not fighting fires, there’s plenty to do, like cook meals for the crew, Charlie’s favorite job of all. Firefighters are perennially popular with young readers. This is an ideal read for fire prevention lessons and as a tribute to local hero firefighters.

Otis and the Kittens
Written & illustrated by Loren Long
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

On the farm where Otis the tractor lives, it hasn’t rained in a long time and farmers all over the valley have grown anxious with water in such short supply. One hot afternoon, when Otis and his friends are resting beneath the shade of the apple tree, Otis spots something moving down in the valley—an orange tabby cat headed straight for the old barn. But then Otis sees something else that causes his engine to sputter . . . a swirl of smoke coming from the same barn. A fire!

As Otis races toward the fire with his friends in tow, he spots the tabby cat mewing in alarm. Otis rushes inside to discover the source of the cat’s worries–her little kittens are perched up on the hayloft, scared. Otis never hesitates. Yet even after he delivers a tractor full of kittens safely outside, their mama remains upset. Re-entering the burning barn, Otis discovers why: one tiny kitten, still too scared to move. With a friendly chuff, Otis coaxes her down and she scampers out the door. That’s when the floor collapses with a CRASH, trapping the tractor. Now Otis, the friend everyone can count on, must count on his friends.

Told with a sense of play and devotion, this is a heartwarming tale that reminds readers that sometimes even those who we count on to help us need a little help themselves. From the creator of Otis, Otis and the Puppy, and the illustrator of The Little Engine That Could and Of Thee I Sing by President Barack Obama.
