    young boy learns about the work of firefighters

    The text is not in the two languages of English and Spanish, but rather the bilingual eight-year-old Tito uses some Spanish words in telling his story. Passing in front of a firehouse in Spanish Harlem, Tito sees a man gesturing excitedly and speaking Spanish to one of the fireman. Tito interprets what the man is saying: he saw coming from a window. Then Tito goes with the firemen in their truck to investigate. It's only a pot of rice smoldering when it was left on a stove by a woman when she fell asleep in her apartment. But the incident gives Tito the chance to learn what firemen are like and see how they react to a fire. Tim Hoppey, the author of this simple children's tale, is himself a fireman, who was involved in the 9/11 rescue efforts. Ages 3-6.

    Un Libro Excelente! An Excellent Book!

    What a great story! Children always love a book in which the child becomes 'the teacher' and helps out the adult. The look on Tito's face as he translates for Richie, the firefighter, is priceless...Even more so when he returns from his adventure! Tito lives out every little boy's dream. The bright full-page illustrations are filled with detail right down to the page numbers inside a fire shield. My students cheered for Tito, the Firefighter!
