Paper engineering continues to amaze, and MY LITTLE RED FIRE TRUCK is the most amazing of all. In the creative hands of Stephen T. Johnson (My Little Red Toolbox) this is not just a book but a fascinating toy that will yield hours of learning and fun. Inside the bright red covers are 10 pop-out tools, 4 bolts and 4 wheels that really do turn and keep on turning, an erasable slate to keep track of the truck's comings and goings, an interactive radio and walkie-talkie (communication is of the utmost importance), a revolving red light (move aside the fire truck's coming!), and a fire bell that'll surprise. Recommended for youngsters ages 3 and up the book also aids helping young eyes to tell time, and the parts are super sturdy to last through many play times. Doesn't every child want a bright red fire truck? - Gail Cooke

I bought this book for my 3 year old nephew. Not only did he love it, but my 5 year old daughter and 8 year old son did, as well! It's realistic, educational, and interactive. Highly recommended!

"My Little Red Fire Truck" is full of beautiful visuals, informative text, and interactive tools and concepts to engage even kids who have a hard time sitting still long enough to read a book with their parent. Kinesthetic learners are often overlooked in the process of designing children's literature, but this series (which includes "My Little Red Tool Box") encourages kids to think and engage in physical tasks described in the text. One precaution of which parents should be aware, however, is that the tools can be a bit tricky to remove initially from the pages when the book is brand new. Make sure to help young children when the pieces need to be separated or moved in various ways the first time. Otherwise, this wonderful learning tool will simply go the way of so many damaged pop-up books that become torn and useless after one or two brutal yanks of a tab.

I got this book for my toddler a few months ago and he still reads it every day. He especially loves the steering wheel, ignition key and radio, but he also loves to pretend to climb up the ladder and use the tools. He even can tell you what a halligan is. It's definitely not an on-the-go book -- with a little one, you need to be careful to put the pieces back in the book or they can be easily mislaid. The book is pricey but worth it.

I bought this book for my 2 year old grandson because he loves firetrucks. This book is very big for such a small child. I would recommend this book for children 4 years old and up. This book is a very cute concept but overwhelming for the small children.
