This is the Firefighter




"This is the Firefighter" by Laura Godwin

This is one of my favorite "firefighter-themed" picture books perfect for preschool age children. I love the simplistic way it describes what firefighters do and the rhythmic tone of the words.

"This is the ladder, attached to the truck, that reaches the lady and man who are stuck. This is the firefighter who climbs through the heat. These are the people who wait in the street. This is the rescue. This is the cheer that roars through the crowd when the signal's 'All clear.'"

The illustrations are filled with buildings, people, cars, trucks and firefighters. There is so much to look at, you will probably see something different each time you read it.
