Synopsis

Firefighter by Louise Spilsbury

Discover the heroic work of firefighting crews in this book. It explores how brave men and women begin a career in firefighting, the skills they need to carry out their job, the equipment they use to fight fires and save lives and the risks and rewards of their life-saving work. The book includes advice for children who wish to be a firefighter, and explores whether they are likely to be suited to the job. What are the careers that make a difference to other people and improve or save their lives? Careers That Save Lives explores the world of jobs that save or change lives, offering readers an in-depth look at these worthwhile and fulfilling roles. The series invites children to consider why each job is so important and what characteristics people might need to carry it out. An interesting and reflective career series for children aged 9+.

Reviews

It's good to see a series of books on people who help us that is aimed at an older age group -- most are written for KS1 children but these are suitable for upper KS2 Parents In Touch
