Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Remember the Matchbox cars? They're just as loved today as in years past. Here's a cute combination—a Matchbox fire truck comes with a small sturdy board book. After the fire-fighting story there are two pages of driving lessons and safety tips for parents to use with their children. A good gift choice. Part of the "Matchbox" series. 2000, Pleasant Company, $5.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: A. Braga SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8

    ISBN 1584852119 - Firemen have always been cool to little kids and this book just might have something parents will appreciate, too. The fact that it comes with a Matchbox car doesn't hurt, either. From the alarm to the fire to the clean up in preparation for the next time, Fire! details what happens when that alarm goes off. Firemen slide down the pole, pull on their boots, coats and helmets and they're off - in under a minute! The last two pages are devoted to helping you create your family's plan in case of a fire and helping your child identify the sounds s/he hears when you're driving around (although it doesn't say why you would want to do this). Board book pages are sturdy but, because this book is much wider than it is tall, it's very easy to sort of twist the bulk of the book in a different direction than the cover, pulling it loose from the binding. Just something to keep an eye out for, because it really is worthwhile to tape it back up and keep it in your collection. Lee MacLeod's illustrations cover every inch of every page with bright, exciting, action-packed images. Your child will find the book a page-turner and will enjoy re-enacting that excitement with the toy fire engine and you might appreciate the chance to work out your own family's emergency plan. The book, itself, might merit 4 stars, but the educational aspect and the vehicle put it over the top. - AnnaLovesBooks
