Reviews - What do customers think about Big Frank's Fire Truck (Pictureback(R))?
Big Frank's Fire Truck Jan 4, 2008
My son's absolute favorite book. The boy could read this book forever and still not get enough of it.
Outstanding book for all ages May 11, 2006
What is impressive about this book is it's appeal to any age. The book follows a firefighter during his typical 24-hour shift. All information is based on realistic circumstances - from responding to a car accident, to inspecting stores/restaurants, to teaching children fire safety, to the infamous fighting of brush fires. Artwork is detailed but easy (and fascinating) for a two-year old to view. Lots of little details are imbedded in the pictures for older children to find and learn about firefighting. The book is slightly wordy for a two-year old, but perfect for ages 4 and up. We summarize each page for our 2-year old son. I am excited that this book will continue to be one of his favorites as he grows. A must for children who love Firemen/Fire Trucks!
excellent book Apr 8, 2006
This is a wonderfull book!!!!! It's realistic, the pictures are very good, the words used are perfect for my 3 year old son. He loves this book, and I love reading it to him over and over again.
At the top of kids firefighter books. Apr 6, 2005
My five year old son loves firefighting books. I am a volunteer firefighter/EMT in NY so my son always has a lot of questions. This book is fine without explanations. My son always has to know, "Is that how you do it Daddy?"
This book stays close to reality with the help of Big Frank! Big Frank is a very likeable character for my son. I first started to read this book to him at 4 and he has loved it since.
My son LOVES this book Mar 14, 2005
My son who is 2.5 years old and is very much into fire trucks nowadays, absolutely loves this book. Everytime when I ask which book he wants to read, he says "Big Frank's Fire Truck!" He's memorized pretty much the entire book. I'm now on the lookout for another fantastic book. He also loves Fireman Small.
