Fire Dog Rescue (Curious George), 22 pages. EARLY READER (Level 2). Houghton Mifflin, 2015. $4.
George makes friends with Sam, the newest recruit at the fire station and Blaze, Sam’s new fire dog. Blaze has a tendency to wander away to make other friends and gets picked up by the animal shelter truck. If Sam can’t get Blaze to stay at the firehouse Sam might not be able to be a firefighter.
Unfortunately George’s solution for Sam is to get another dog from the shelter to keep Blaze company, which I don’t feel is a realistic option for firefighters or most people. It does have a good message about getting your dog a collar, tag and license.
