Zimmerman, Andrea and David Clemesha Fire Engine Man. PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt and Company, 2016. $7.99.
The book’s narrator, a little boy, tells all about how in the future he is going to be a fire fighter. He will drive the fire engine, help other fire fighters put out the fires, and even host his little brother for a nap at the fire station! He imagines that when his little brother gets bigger, he could be a fire engine man, too.
This is a sweet and fun board book aimed at a toddler/Pre-K audience. The text is simple and the illustrations are endearing. Many young children are intrigued by fire engines and this book perfectly captures that. I think this board book is a real winner!
Pre-K—ADVISABLE. Reviewer: TC
