What did you like about the book?The Little Fire Truck is a sturdy picture book – not a board book, but the paper is glossy and durable – that will surely withstand lots of repeated readings!

Each page has four short lines of rhyming text starting with, “I’m a little fire truck.” The repetition and colorful illustrations make this an excellent choice for storytime.

To whom would you recommend this book? Fire truck books are a perennial favorite, and lots of kids will enjoy this one!

Who should buy this book?  Public libraries, preschools

Where would you shelve it?  Picture books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?   If you love fire trucks, go for it!
