Calling all preschoolers—grab a hose and ladder—it's time to put out fires!

Alarm rings. Lights flash. Sirens sound—FIRE!

Here comes the fire engine man. Dressed from head to toe in special gear, he drives his trusty fire truck to the scene and puts the fire out. It's all in a day's work for this brave firefighter.

Told in simple words from a little boy's point of view, this action-packed picture book celebrates a child's world of adventure.
