When I Grow Up I Want To Be…
As adults we sometimes forget youngsters can be afraid of day-to-day elements we take for granted. They see things differently than we do, so their reactions can be different.
Wigu Publishing addresses this issue in their recent WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE…series release, A FIREFIGHTER! This delightful series introduces juvenile readers (aimed at ages 6 and up) to residents in their community and describes their various vocations.
The latest release – WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE…A FIREFIGHTER – focuses on a young boy named Will and a field trip to the local firehouse. Will enjoys field trips, but doesn’t want to go on this one. He’s afraid of fire and firefighters. He knows the firefighters do good work, but they are huge and scary in heavy coats and masks.
Will has no choice but to go on the field trip. Once at the firehouse he begins to learn about the firefighters and the equipment they use. He also discovers the firefighters aren’t as scary as he thought when he meets them up close and understands about their clothing.
This charming book explains about firefighters jobs, how they use their equipment and why. In addition, it shows the various types of fire trucks used, along with air and water equipment.
The book also teaches fire safety and encourages youngsters to talk with the adults in their home about ways to stay safe. A Home Fire Safety Checklist is included, along with instructions on making your own home fire escape plan.
The story is brought to life with beautiful colored drawings combined with actual photographs.
This fascinating book will not only educate, but entertain and inspire youngsters.
