WOW! Firefighters are busy! They have many tasks to do each day including “washing, waxing, shining the truck, cleaning the gear, getting rid of the muck.”
In Firefighters’ Busy Day, children can see the jobs firefighters do before, during, and after a fire call. Through the use of movement written into the text, they can even help firefighters get their jobs done.
Young children can pretend to be busy firefighters, too, by trying some of the exciting fire safety activities included such as a fire truck parade or having firefighter-themed meal. These activities are sure to turn everyday learning into firefighter fun.
