Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kids love field trips but they are not always possible or practical. This book offers a colorfully illustrated alternative beginning with a list of "things to find out" that helps to focus readers before the fictional field trip begins. This tour begins in the garage as firefighters, Tim and Raj, guide students through their firehouse, stopping in different areas to point out vehicles such as a ladder truck, fire engine, ambulance and rescue boat. They also point out special equipment like turn-out gear and HAZMAT suits, as well as common areas for work, exercise and recreation. Along the way they discuss a firefighter's daily duties, what happens before, at and after a fire, the importance of teamwork and some other jobs that firefighters are trained for. Written for the pre-K to first grade audience, this is a very simple introduction to what a student might expect to experience on an actual field trip. The only negative aspect to this otherwise well-written book is the addition of information in italic type on every two-page spread. The information, while relevant, could have just as easily been incorporated into the main body of text and therefore been less distracting to young readers. Adding to the overall usefulness of this book is a related activity (a fire muster), a Learn More list, including books and Web sites, Fun Facts, an index and a Words to Know list. This is part of the "Out and About" series. 2003, Picture Window Books,
