A fascinating introduction to the world of a fire station!
Fire Truck to the Rescue!, illustrated by Joe Bucco, gives a fascinating introduction to the world of fire stations, the vehicles, and the fire fighters. With flaps and tabs on every page, the book also features four special spreads that give an in-depth insight into the fire station, fire engine, fire helicopter, and firefighting practices. The fun rhyming story follows a firefighting mission that takes the fire crew out of the station, on the road, and to the emergency site to tackle a blazing building.
