KIRKUS REVIEW

Fireman Small To The Rescue ($4.95; Mar. 1998; 14 pp.; 0-395-88122-6): When the alarm sounds, Fireman Small responds quickly. There’s a fire in Farmer Pig’s barn, and it’s up to the tiny fireman to put it out. The farm animals (including a crocodile in purple overalls) are terrified, but the courageous fireman quells the blaze. After a hard day’s work, Fireman Small snuggles into his cozy bed at the fire station. This book provide tidbits of information about the civic duties of firefighters, just right for toddlers wondering what a siren means. And Fireman Small, resembling nothing so much as a busy jellybean, makes a perfect vicarious hero for preschoolers. (Board book. 1-3)
