Item description for Even Firefighters Hug Their Moms by Christina Maclean...
Big Frank the firefighter, Officer Dave the policeman, Dan the construction worker, Captain Steve the helicopter pilot, and Joe the EMT-these are just some of the people a little boy pretends to be, using common household objects (and his little sister) as props. When he's fighting fires, serving and protecting, and rescuing people at sea, he's too busy to show Mom any affection. Still, she keeps reminding him that even these tough guys hug their moms. Eventually, even happily, the boy gives in. This lively picture book celebrates imaginative play and family togetherness as it pays a subtle tribute to today's heroes.

One of our favorites! Apr 11, 2008
My 3 year old is crazy about firefighters and this is one of our favorite books! Very creative, and although a little long it holds his attention until the end (then he always laughs and gives me a hug). Very good book!
Cute Book Feb 28, 2008
We ordered this for our son who was graduating from the fire fighting academy - Cute paperback book. Only issue at all was with the delivery. It was left outside of the house and in the rain -- could have ruin the book but fortunately it was only damp by the time we got it.
Very interesting book to read Feb 8, 2008
This book is very interesting. My 3.5 boy loves all the role games described in the book. Language is ok.
IMAGINITIVE PLAY AT WORK Dec 14, 2007
I'LL GIVE THIS BOOK TO A KINDERGARTEN BOY, BUT I THINK HE WILL LIKE IT FOR A LONG TIME. THE VOCABULARY WILL BE A CHALLENGE, BUT HE WILL GROW INTO IT. I KNOW HE WILL LOVE RO HAVE HIS MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER READ THIS TO HIM FOR YEARS TO COME. FIREFIGHTERS ARE NOT THE ONLY OCCUPATION INCLUDED. THE JOBS RUN THE GAMUT. THE COLORFUL ILLUSTRATIONS BEAUTIFULLY PORTRAY IMAGINITIVE PLAY AT WORK. 'LITTLE SISTER' IS INVOLVED IN EACH WORK EPISODE, TOO. IT IS A LOT OF FUN TO SEE EVERY DAY OBJECTS USED IN SUCH CREATIVE WAYS!!
