Let’s Meet a Firefighter!
Are you curious about fire trucks? Firefighting clothes? Hoses and ladders? You’re in luck!

Let’s hear it for firefighters!
“Cartoon-style animated drawings in bright colors introduce diverse characters who will capture children’s interest.” —School Library Journal
“In each book introducing a community-benefiting career, schoolchildren meet one adult to learn about his or her job; information includes the training required to become a firefighter, doctor, etc., daily routines, and primary responsibilities. The content is inclusive and up-to-date but delivered though vapid stories. Peppy computer-generated cartoons are amateur.” – The Horn Book Guide
