Aviation Firefighters based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Every young person goes through the firefighter or aviation phase in their childhood. For those torn between both areas of interest, there is the Airport Firefighter whose story is told most vividly in the new children's book, "Aviation Firefighters". One in a series of books about firefighters and the varied specialties of firefighting, this book will surely dazzle all youth. The book is cleverly laid out in a nice design and contains action-filled photographs that tell a story all on their own. The author, Nancy White, took great care to deliver timely and accurate information on the subject matter. Young readers can learn about real life incidents (and unfortunately some tragedies) that have occurred in aviation in the past. This can be helpful to those interested in journalism. It takes you to the scene and behind the scenes where it gives you a good view of Airport Firefighters' vehicles, equipment and the constant drills and training they must go through. I like how the author's story goes all over the world and at various US-based Aviation Fire Departments to divulge the inner workings of this heroic and noble profession. The yellow idea/concept boxes with the red firefighter's hat on every other page compliment the text effectively. In summary, "Aviation Firefighters" will immediately capture a young reader's attention, stir their imagination and increase their knowledge in a fun-filled way.
