Synopsis

The Firefighters by Sue Whiting

This is a lively picture book about firefighters - imaginary and real! 'Eee-orr! Eee-Orr! Eee-Orr! Our fire engines are fast and noisy - just like the real ones.' From sounding the siren to speeding off in their fire engines (cardboard boxes will do), from finding the fire to expertly putting it out, the children love playing firefighters with Mrs Iverson. They are brave and strong, just like real firefighters. And after a hard day of fighting fires, nothing is better than having two real live firefighters come to visit and getting to climb aboard their big, red, shiny fire engine! It captures the joy of imaginative play and the excitement of meeting childhood heroes. It is a fantastic read-aloud text with noises and sounds for children to join in with.
