The simple rhyming text in this book describes firefighting-related activities and gear for each letter of the alphabet. This accompanies a simple narrative in which the firefighters respond to a call. Pastel scenes illustrating the text span each 9 x 12” page. There is a lot of action on these vivid pages and a nice mix of general and detailed information (“A is for Alarm, B is for Boots, K is for K-tool, S is for Sounding”). The illustrations and text together provide a basic understanding of the more technical terms, and a note from the author/artist, a volunteer firefighter, provides additional detail on fires and firefighting. (Ages 3-5)
