Always an important subject for board books, this title introduces young children to all the things firefighters do: putting out fires, of course, but also responding to traffic accidents and helping people when there is a bad storm. With detailed illustrations and simple text, the book also gives young readers an inside look at various fire trucks, the control room, a firehouse, the tools firefighters use, and a typical day in the life of a firefighter.
