More About Chris L. Demarest
Chris L. Demarest says: "A few years ago my wife and I brought our two-year-old son to an open house at a fire station. Ethan loved the big red fire trucks and I became totally enthralled not only by the trucks, but by the idea of serving my community as a firefighter. "Being a full-time illustrator, I work at home, so I could be on call at any time. I took a lot of classes, passed some hard tests, and became a volunteer firefighter. I am on call for the Meriden, New Hampshire, station, where I now get to drive those big red fire trucks. "I created Firefighters A to Z to show Ethan and other children what firefighting is really like. It can be an exciting job, but it's also a dangerous one. I hope to convey that through this book."
Chris L. Demarest currently resides in Meriden, in the state of New Hampshire.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Five Crayons / I Cinque Pastelli a Cera (Adventures With Nicholas / Le Avventure Di Nicola) (Italian Edition)?
nice Mar 18, 2009
I bought this book together with "Una visita alla nonna" (the grammar mistake in "nona" has been corrected) and "The missing cat". They were a present for a 3yo who is learning Italian. The stories are very nice with a lot of useful vocabulary (even for adults!). I'm a native Italian so I must say that one of the readers has an American accent in his pronunciation....but overall text and dramatization are good. Some songs don't match very well with the music and the result is sometimes funny....But the intent is to repeat vocabulary and Italian idioms: children learn a lot by listening to songs. These books are a good tool for interaction between parents/teachers and children.
