Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"Clang! Clang! The alarm goes off in the fire station." The fire truck comes out the doors and races down the street. The ladders are raised and water and foam are shot onto the flames. Young children will enjoy participating in this interactive book. They can open the doors to the station by lifting the flaps. They can slide the fire truck along the road, lift the ladder, and spin the blades on the TV news helicopter. And if that isn't enough, they will probably want to verbally make the sounds for the horn and siren. The brief text makes it appropriate for the age group. The pages and the tabs are sturdy, though a few of the items, such as the truck moving along the road, may not hold up to a toddler's eager fingers. This will be a big hit. 2001 (orig. 1997), Cartwheel Books/Scholastic Inc,

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
The fire alarm rings and this fire truck is off to fight a fire at the old warehouse. Children navigate the truck through traffic to the scene of the fire, where they connect hoses, raise ladders and switch on water pumps to fight the blaze. An aerial view of the fire shows additional vehicles racing to the scene and a television news helicopter overhead, simulating a real emergency event. There are many lift-up flaps and pull tabs to help children understand fire fighting in this brightly colored and well-constructed book. A positive feature is that the reader is the actual firefighter and feels a sense of accomplishment when the blaze is extinguished. The text and interactive design of the book create a sense of urgency about fire fighting. This book is part of a vehicle series, which includes a plane, taxi, tow truck, and engine.
School Library Journal
PreS-KA die-cut cardboard cover promises great fun for fire truck aficionados. When the alarm sounds, the fire engine and crew race to put out a warehouse firealso attended by a helicopter carrying a news crew. A white and yellow seal on the cover proclaims, "It's Totally Interactive!"; unfortunately, those "sturdy pull tabs" are anything but! The interactive aspects are fragile and difficult to manipulate, almost coming apart on first use. The gratuitous gimmick ruins this otherwise appealing picture book with bright, black-outlined illustrations that are reminiscent of the work of Byron Barton. Libraries that purchase interactive materials for use in storytimes might consider it, but everyone else will want to pass.Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library
