This rhyming picture book pays tribute to firefighters on Thanksgiving Day.

It’s Thanksgiving Day at Station 1, and Firefighter Lou has planned a fabulous meal for everyone. But each time the alarm sounds, the firefighters run to an emergency, leaving behind half-peeled potatoes, unbaked bread, and melting ice cream. Then, at the biggest fire of the day, one of the firefighters gets hurt. Will they still be able to find a way to celebrate Thanksgiving?

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 - On Thanksgiving Day, the firefighters at Station 1 are busy preparing a holiday dinner. While two of them are grocery shopping in the morning, a call comes in over their cell phone and they rush out, leaving behind a full shopping cart. After they've put out the fire, they go back to the store, help mop up the melted ice cream, and return to the station. Then another call comes in. In fact, every time they put out a fire and return to the firehouse, they inevitably get another call. In one of the later fires, Lou, who had volunteered to cook, is injured. This time, when the others return, they find a sumptuous holiday feast with a heartfelt thank-you note attached, and they take some of this food to Lou in the hospital. Vibrant, somewhat surreal illustrations vividly depict the firefighters walking through doorways ablaze in orange flames. Despite a tendency toward a crowded, sometimes confusing look to the spreads and some forced rhyming structure, firefighter fans should enjoy this story. - James K.
