Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The fifth board book to star Bizzy Bear finds the friendly teddy keeping, well, busy at a fire station. Integrated tabs and other interactive elements allow Bizzy to slide down a fire pole (“Bizzy Bear, Bizzy Bear, slide—don’t fall”), cause traffic to circle around town, and let readers help put out the fire in the final spread. Davies’s digital illustrations are reminiscent of vintage Golden Books in this none-too-frightening tour of a day in the life of a firefighter. Simultaneously available: Bizzy Bear: Pirate Adventure! Ages 1–3. (Feb.)

Firefighters are sure winners, and this is no exception. The book's chunky pull-tabs are easy to move and they begin right on the front cover, where Bizzy Bear and his fellow firemen are shown in their fire truck heading out of the station. The first spread shows everyone in the firehouse relaxing but not for long. Bizzy Bear gets an emergency call and the alarm sounds. He slides down the pole and puts on his uniform. Other firefighters include an elephant, and an alligator. Readers get to open the firehouse door as the truck is ready to pull out. The truck races through town (turning a wheel shows this trip.) Finally, they arrived at the burning building and our hero Bizzy Bear saves the day by rescuing the occupants of the building. This is a storybook that should hold up to lots of pulls on the various tabs. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
Bizzy Bear, along with a crocodile, an elephant and a dog, has an exciting, interactive adventure as a firefighter. From the emergency call to the final rescue, readers see life on the job for bear and company. Each boldly colored, detailed scene presents one interactive element per page turn. With sliding panels, the doors to the firehouse open and shut, the bear slides down a pole, and the elephant extinguishes the flames. As in the other Bizzy Bear titles, a finger-sized hole or tab is provided to help with the manipulation. One of the most pleasing features is a spin dial that allows readers to race the fire truck through traffic. The verse, using the meter and scheme of the classic rhyme "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear," fits with the action: "Bizzy Bear, Bizzy Bear, ladder and spray. / Bizzy Bear, Bizzy Bear, saves the day!" Pirate Adventure, another in the series, uses similar interactive features and the same rhyme structure. Here, there are a pirate ship to rock, sails to raise, a hole to dig, and a treasure chest to open. While most of the movable parts appear sturdy, there are features that will eventually rip and come loose, especially those on the cover. Sure to be a crowd pleaser for nimble-fingered little ones. (Board book. 1-3)
