I love first responders, and I have a special place in my heart for Firemen 🚒. My dad was a volunteer before he married my mom.💚 When we were at the NC Homeschool Book Fair, I found this book and met the author. I grabbed a copy for my niece, who loves fire trucks. And of course…I had to read it first 😉
Uncle Rocky: Fireman
By James Brewster
Overall: This book is about Uncle Rocky, a Tillerman on a Hook-and-Ladder truck (which my town doesn’t have ☹) It’s so endearing! Not too scary for kids, just right for middle readers and just plain cute to us older ones 😉 I want to get the second collection and maybe get the picture books someday! It’s so important to teach kids respect for first responders! I loved how they always thank God and say ,“Glad to do it!” I also liked how even though there was a mention of girlfriends, there was no kissing or anything like that and they were always with others. AND THERE IS A POLICEMAN FRIEND IN THE STORY! 🚓
My only complaint was the reference to the theater and a reference to a bad song and how they sing that song to keep beat with CPR.
So if you want a sweet fireman read, pick up this book and give it a try!
Have a blessed week!
