Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Here is a book with wheels. Three wheels make this title literally roll along. Unsnap the bright red clasp to read the words, which tell about fire engines and hydrants, aerial ladder and rescue trucks, the fire chief's truck and a fireboat. The illustrations are clear and colorful; the people shown represent many races and both sexes. The word Tonka appears on each vehicle, and, indeed, this is copyrighted by Hasbro, the toy company that owns the trademark, Tonka. The text is age-appropriate, and the illustrations show firefighters who seem to enjoy their work. A warning on the back of the book says it is a choking hazard and not for children under 3 years. A very appealing title. 2001, Scholastic, . Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Candace Deisley
