Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Young readers will delight in this thirty-two-page book filled with words they can read and pictures that closely match the text. Four short chapters plus a fire truck diagram, fun facts, a glossary, extra reading and an index make up this early reader in the "Vroom, vroom" series. Sound words "splash, sizzle, whee-ooo, whee-ooo" add to the reading fun. Bright and colorful close-up photos bring the fire to life and place the reader close to the action. Captions related to the photos also work as sidebars to add more information to the text. Readers find out what a fire truck carries, how the trucks go to a fire, what fire fighters do when they get to a fire, and fire truck equipment that can reach fires way up high. They will also discover how many wheels are on the truck and that a fire truck is like a big tool box. End-of-book facts tell readers that fire trucks can cost as much as forty cars, early trucks had horses for power not engines, and why some fire trucks are painted yellow instead of red. All in all, the pace of the books keeps rolling along to hold the interest of youngsters in grades K through two or three. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
