Flashing Fire Engines (Amazing Machines) by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker
 
"Big Bold fire engines, waiting day and night, Ready for a rescue or a blazing fire to fight. As soon as there's a fire alarm, the engines start to roar. The firefighters jump aboard...it rumbles out the door." Jump aboard a bright red fire engine with a trio of friendly animal firefighters as sirens wail, lights flash, fire hoses squirt, and fires blaze — in this story that blends action and rhyme with all the details kids want to know about one of their favorite machines. The mix of visual entertainment and lively wordplay ensures that young children will delight in the reading experience, as will the adults fortunate enough to read aloud these irresistible rhymes!

F Brewer, January 23, 2009 (view all comments by F Brewer)
Bought "Tremendous Tractors" in this series to take back to twin grandsons (age 2 1/2) last week. These stories are terrific! We went to local library to get more and now I'm buying copies of kids' favorites since I know their popularity will last. There is a good amount of information embedded in delightful rhyme -- definitely more than just identification -- more explanation. In all, these rich read-aloud stories are brought to life with cool illustrations and characters who continue from book to book.
