PreSchool-Grade 1-A straightforward look at firefighters and the equipment they use. Rockwell's text follows young Jason as he tours the local firehouse, meets some firefighters, and even gets to sit in the driver's seat in the fire engines. True fans won't find much that's new here, but for some young listeners, it's a perfect introduction to the popular topic. All of the characters are Dalmatians, pictured standing upright and dressed in human clothes. At times it's difficult to determine which character is which, but their attire does help to differentiate among them. Rockwell's brightly colored illustrations are painted in a childlike style, though they include quite a few (occasionally blurred) details that belie their apparent simplicity. The enduring appeal of all things related to fire fighting as well as Rockwell's popularity ensure a place for this book in most libraries.
