Firefighters' lives, and the lives of people in their communities, depend on the respect firefighters have for their trucks and tools. Each truck has its own personality, from the way it starts to the way it operates. Some are like race horses, lunging into action, and some are like mules which need gentle coaxing to get the job done, but each one is maintained, polished, and loved by the firefighters at the station. Most of all, they're adored by the children. Every fire hall should have a copy of this to read to children when they give hall tours.” Duncan Bowman, Firefighter Selkirk, Manitoba, Canada. “The book is a delight. Great humanity and compassion written into the story. The waves of human emotion that are positive in the book are those that children don’t experience enough of today. I love the bright colors and the way the pages are designed, especially those that are multi-segmented. As a reading specialist, I would like to point out how great this story is to improve student comprehension skills. While reading, the teacher can ask questions to improve listening, predicting, understanding, etc. The book lends itself to be the beginning of units on character traits.” Beverly Grabe, Retired Principal/Teacher B.A., M.A. Education, Reading Specialist and Administration
