Bestselling Munsch classic now available as a board book.
What child wouldn't love to go for a ride on a fire truck? In this all-time favorite, two kids visit a fire station. While they are exploring a fire truck, an alarm sounds, and away they go to the rescue! In his inimitable way, Munsch turns the story into a hilarious romp that ends with the kids in the bath after helping to battle a fire that turned them all kinds of crazy colors.
Now available with a simplified, revised text in a toddler-friendly board book edition, this story will delight very young children discovering it for the first time.
This isn't one of the best children's books I've ever read, but it's still a cute concept.
In The Fire Station, Shiela and Michael go exploring in a fire station and find themselves on a rather exciting adventure.
The narration is a little bit long so it seems to be geared to a slightly older group of young kids. The illustration and coloring seem a bit old-fashioned, as though you were reading an old storybook. The story is still nice, though, and I thought the ending was pretty funny.
Thanks to NetGalley and Annick Press for the e-ARC. Publication date of The Fire Station is on September 1, 2012.
