This book is divided into short and simple chapters about the different facets that make up a fire truck and the different types of fire trucks: Racing to the fire, pumper trucks, ladder trucks, room for the crew, toolbox on wheels. The simple text explains each concept, there are large bright photographs and labels, and color backdrops. Also included are diagrams, fun facts, and a glossary.
What a fun series! This book is fantastic, simple enough for younger students to enjoy and first thru second graders to read alone. The cover is appealing, the images are fresh and modern and the colors are bright. Its stuffed full of information while still managing to remain simple.
