Fire(man, fighter, truck) Books

As Raegan mentioned, October is National Fire Prevention month. If you have a son, you likely haven't ever needed  special month to pay attention to anything firetruck related. But in honor of the month, I thought I would share some of our favorite "fire" books.

At the Firehouse by Anne Rockwell
This is a fun book about visiting the local fire station

Firefighters A to Z by Chris L. Demarest

This book focuses on firefighters. It also shows kids that a firefighters job has an element of danger without scaring children. It also has the bonus of being an A to Z book. Very well done.

Clifford The Firehouse Dog by Norman Birdwell
Kaitlyn loves Clifford, but doesn't have an overly strong interest in firetrucks. So a book like this is great because it combines the fire theme with a favorite character.

Curious George by H.A. Rey
The original. It has a firefighting sequence in it. There are also Curious George firefighting books if you want one just about firefighting.

Big Frank's Fire Truck by Leslie McGuire
This has long been a favorite book of Brayden's. It is full of information for the curious little mind.

Firefighter Frank by Monica Wellington
This one follows a fire Chief throughout his day.
