I'm a fan of DK books.They're simple. They're informative. They're cheap. If your child is too young to read, they're perfectly good read-aloud books.What more can you ask for when stocking your kid's library?As you might expect, this book takes us through a day in a firefighter's life. The sentences are short and direct. This makes them easy to read, and it also makes the book more exciting.The fire in the book (you knew there had to be one) is not especially scary, and is dealt with quickly. More detail is given to the more usual routine - cleaning, taking a class on a tour to talk about fire safety, that sort of thing.I very much recommend this book for small children.

This book is about what a firefighter might do on a typical day- inspect equipment at the firehouse, go on a restaurant inspection, do firehouse chores, and of course put out a fire. It is a well-rounded look at firefighting.

This easy reader is about what firefighters do each day. When the fire alarm goes off the Rob Green and the other firefighters hurriedly get their gear on and start the truck. Can they get there in time to save a little¿s girl dog?I like this story because it goes along with community helpers which young children should learn about.I would use this book with Pre-K to First grade. I would have the Pre-K and Kindergarten students do a KWL chart. I would have the first graders help me read and then draw me one part of the story. Writing in their own words what they would say about it making a class book.

My 4 year old daughter stated that "I think this book is very good because it is so awesome." Tautological statements like this, of course, are basic to the appreciation of firefighters. Why are firefighters so cool? Because they are awesome. It isn't in the details.
