Avery took to this book on first reading and hasn t stopped asking for it ever since I love that it features exactly 50% male female characters in a book that would typically be aimed at boys and feature only boys After reading it at least three times a day for two weeks I m still not bored with it, which is saying something.

This lively book features two boys, one girl, and one teacher pretending to be firefighters and put out a fire Afterward they get to meet real firefighters I love one of the firefighters is female preschool and up for length.
Here is the review I wrote for my online review writing course The Firefighters is a story of three preschoolers imaginatively playing firefighters with their teacher, with all the typical sounds included prominently on many pages The narrator and his two friends pretend to don firefighting uniforms, climb aboard their cardboard box fire engines, invite their teacher who barely fits aboard to rush to the scene and save Lulu s Ice Creamery from a fire When the pretending is over and the children [...]
Miss Iverson s class loves to play firehouse WEEE OOO WEEE OOO they cry as they race around the playground using large boxes as surrogate fire trucks and long tubes as fire hoses After this excitement, We flop to the ground tired and dirty But their adventure is not over yet as a real fire truck with two firefighters aboard shows up to tell the children about fighting fires and rescuing people Then the children get to climb into the fire truck and look around Rawlins colorful illustrations show [...]
A trio of grade schoolers and their teacher grab their cardboard boxes and makeshift uniforms and head out to extinguish a make believe fire Imagine their excitement when real live firefighters appear in their fire engine to teach them about fire safety Firetrucks are still a big deal at our house, so this book, needless to say, has already been renewed once so far It has an appealing and fairly original illustration style and the story is a fun blend of make believe and real life, with some fir [...]
This cute book has all the elements of fun for early elementary and preschool The children pretend they are putting out the fire with their teacher, Mrs Iverson When they finish their playing, she surprises them with a visit from REAL firefighters on their firetruck who instruct them on proper behavior during a fire Great information in a fun format Great trade book for school
Fun colorful pictures I liked the noises and the play imagination used It also teaches a bit about fire, but it is kind of a long book I think it should have left off the part where the real firefighters come in.
What I like most about this book is Whiting s welcoming embrace of children s imaginative play and the incorporation of a teacher who supports and encourages, rather than squelches, that engagement Can you tell that the Australia native is a former teacher
Great read aloud for pre k kindergarten students This is a story that students would love to act out in readers theater Good for intro to career day, fire safety week, or just to talk about community helpers.
A book about kids imagining that they are firefighters at school and using a big refrigerator box and then meeting real firefighters Could be a good book to use for a box theme or for Play and Learn storytimes.
Cute wee picture book, with clever illustrations and lots of fire brigade sounds sounded out Good way of getting kids to know how to respond to a fire.
Good illustrations, weird text.
Great for a preschool or young K community helpers unit Make sure you have big cardboard boxes on hand after reading to make your own firetrucks
good for storytime.
tre says this book is awsomelol
Might be good for a unit on firefighters, but not for a PS Storytime.
I enjoyed how The Firefighters shows the job of firefighters through children s eyes, and the eyes of the real men and women.
This book is about a class of students and some of them and their teacher were pretending to be fire fighters They would run across the playground and they would say we have no time to stop we have to go Then they would my the fire truck noise and everything After they were done playing they could hear the real thing it was coming our way The firefighters were actually coming to the school to talk to them about safety and all the different stories they had about different fire calls that they we [...]
