Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This little book (7 1/4" x 7 1/4" inches and 32 pages) thoroughly examines two different types of fire truck, the ladder truck and the pumper truck. Readers will learn how these big machines are used to help rescue people and put out fires. It starts out with a side view of a ladder truck, with sixteen different aspects of it labeled. Any child that has been to a fire station open house or on a field trip to a fire station will enjoy learning the proper names of all of the things they have climbed on or around! Those who have not had such an opportunity will almost feel as though they had! Sentences are fairly simple and are presented in large, bold type. There are no more than four sentences per two page spread. Pictures are colorful and realistic. A glossary, called "Challenge Words," is placed at the conclusion, defining unfamiliar words or phrases that are highlighted throughout the book, such as "aerial ladder," "fire extinguisher" and "outriggers." Recommended. Part of the "Bookworms" leveled reading program that is designed to reinforce the skills of emergent, early and fluent readers. Other titles in the series include What's Inside a Firehouse, What's Inside a Hospital and What's Inside a Police Car? 2004, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Four offerings that give up-to-date information about community helpers and agencies. Clear photographs, lots of white space, and short sentences make the books easy to read. However, they suffer from inconsistencies. Each opening spread features small photographs of the things to be discussed in the text. It would be a perfect table of contents, except that the pictures are arranged alphabetically rather than in order of appearance. A glossary of "Challenge Words" defines some of the more technical terms, but gives a pronunciation key for only a few. Even these can be confusing (siren's pronunciation is given as "sigh-run"). On the plus side, male and female role models are shown and different ethnic groups are represented. As there are few books about firefighters and police officers for beginning readers, these books might suffice in a pinch; otherwise, wait until something better is published.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Greatlooking firemen!

    I bought this book for my daughter and I was amazed at how much equipment they carry! And all the different types too! The thing that really caught my eye was the firemen in the book. They are hot! ;-)
