Firefighting is definitely a career that counts. Firefighters keep our communities safe and rescue people in dangerous situations. The men and women who fight fires are considered heroes, and readers will see why through an in-depth exploration of this inspiring career. Readers will learn about a firefighter’s daily tasks, their specialized equipment, and what it takes to be a great firefighter. Specialized jobs—such as forest firefighting, medical response, and disaster relief—are closely examined. The text explains how someone can pursue a career in firefighting and encourages readers to evaluate if they one day could join the heroes that keep our communities safe. Sidebars, fact boxes, infographics, and engaging photos accompany the age-appropriate text.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-This engaging series explores several gratifying yet dangerous careers and thrusts readers into the action from the outset. General job information, such as education and training requirements, physical characteristics, and equipment used, is interspersed with more specific data in sidebars-"A Typical Day," "Careers That Count," and "What Makes a Great..."-providing a balanced look at the risks and rewards associated with each profession. Complementing the text are dynamic color images of these highly skilled individuals in action, whether saving a struggling swimmer or helping refugees, reinforcing the message that these are the people who keep us safe. Graphic organizers, including a spread laying out the many steps needed to prepare for a meaningful career saving lives, will both inform and engage readers. VERDICT Put these titles on display-they won't stay there long.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
