Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks & Firefighters - Review

This past summer, the kiddos got to visit our local fire station. Therefore, fire safety and their experiences were still somewhat fresh in their minds. However, being that October is Fire Safety Awareness Month, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to build upon their prior knowledge while reviewing Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks & Firefighters as well as Lots & Lots of Fire Songs & Safety Tips. This book and DVD combo by Marshall Publishing is superb! I'm not shocked in the least that the products are Dove Family Approved and a Parent's Choice Award Winner. They are winners to me!

My little ones especially enjoyed the 30 minute fire safety songs DVD.  It was high-energy and engaging.  The melodies were catchy and the lyrics were easy to memorize.  This is so important since the songs are teaching the imperative truths of firesafety as evidenced in song titles:  "Call 9-1-1," "Stop, Drop, and Roll," and "Your Home Safety Plan."  This DVD would best serve preschool and early elementary students.  I believe, my children will enjoy it time and time again.

To me, the book is the bestseller.  It houses 128 full-color, glossy, photo-filled pages.  The photographs are brilliant, yet the book is crammed full of facts and tips.  In meeting Firefighter Joe, reader's discover not only a firefighter's important job and the tools and equipment needed to perform such demanding tasks, but also get a sneak peek into the life of a firefighter and firehouse traditions.  The various rescue vehicles are highlighted while providing the history of firefighting and fire trucks.  Fire fighting facts are reported as well as documentation of some of the greatest fires in histroy.  A detailed timeline is recorded among the books pages and a list of fire house museums is included.  I also appreciated the "Words of a Fireman" section that included some beautiful poetry and The Fireman's Prayer.
