Text and photographs introduce a visit to the fire station that includes descriptions of some of the fire engines and ladders.
School Library JournalPreS-Gr 1-The docile look of a cow on a farm, the friendly look of a Dalmatian at the fire station, and the smiling face of a child at the library on the covers of these oversized books are as inviting as the vivid, cheery photos inside. Two to three sentences of large, simple text face full-page, distinctive photos of real places and real people. Children learn about the buildings, animals, and fields and crops on a farm. At the fire station, they see the trucks and gear and how the firemen work together. Finally, they learn about the many aspects of a public library. The FactHound Web site is kid friendly, with few visual distractions and lots of appeal. Attractive, accessible introductions.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
