KIRKUS REVIEW

More than just showcasing letters, this alphabet text introduces a blend of traditional firefighting terms and lesser known and more advanced elements like intersection control devices. Each element introduced, whether traditional or offbeat, syncs up with a representative letter and features a few short but information packed sentences geared to spark reader curiosity and prompt future exploration of the topic. The alphabet is traditionally ordered throughout, with each letter clearly featured in each page’s top left corner. Bold full-page primary color illustrations bring realistic details to various fire equipment, personnel and scenes. Heavy topics, such as the “jaws of life” and the reality of firefighting, are not overwhelming, in part due to the inclusion of a frisky Dalmatian that is partially hidden on each page. Informative and intriguing. (Picture book. 6-9)
