Firefighters A to Z

fire

By Chris L. Demarest

When a firetruck goes by, the kids all run to the window. Yes, there is a fascination with fire, and this full-colour picture book will address it at various levels. It is quite cleverly done, for at one level, it is simply an alphabet rhyme, “A is for…,” a poem about firefighters at work. But the text and colourful pictures are accurate and will probably introduce some tools and methods in firefighting that your child didn’t know about. They are introduced, but not explained, however. But there’s an afterward at the back with a great explanation for older kids. So everyone should c lose the book satified 🙂
