Publishers Description
This Level 1 book is appropriate for children who are just beginning to read. The fire alarm goes off Rob Green and the other firefighters go into action. Is there time to save a little girl's dog? This unique Level 1 series accurately portrays real-life situations that help young children identify with and learn from while helping them improve their reading skills. Presented in classic DK style, young readers will enjoy photographically illustrated information in an entertaining package.

Reviews - What do customers think about DK Readers: Jobs People Do -- A Day in a Life of a Firefighter (Level 1: Beginning to Read)?

Well written! Exciting photographs!  Sep 19, 2007
Linda Hayward's beginning reader gives children a detailed and fascinating look into the day of a fireman and the job that he does dring a 24 hour shift. There are safety inspections, rescue work, checking all the equipment in the firehouse, etc.

The picture word list in the back of the book is an excellent feature, refreshing the reader's knowledge.

Engaging Story - Great Images  Feb 20, 2007
I haven't met a kid yet who didn't have at least a passing interest in firetrucks and firefighters. This book gives curious children a peak into the "real" life of an every day hero. The vocabulary is just right for beginning readers and the images will keep the attention of younger listeners.

This book also serves as a useful tool to speak to your children about fire safety.
Good for younger kids, too  Feb 18, 2007
Although these books are intended for young readers, my two-year-old daughter enjoys having them read to her. The language is easy and direct, the connection between words and pictures is very clear, and the short length fits her attention span.

We have about six books from this series, but "A Day in the Life of a Fire Fighter" is her favorite - and she now loves to point out the "Exit" sign and fire extinguisher in any building we visit.
DK books are wonderful  Jul 14, 2003
My daughter is 4 1/2 and is beginning to read. The DK books are wonderful and she loves them. The pictures are very good (all DK books are excellently illustrated) and the short stories hold her interest. This series is great in that the reading levels are clearly marked on the book cover, so she knows what to look for when at the library or bookstore.

I also appreciate DK because of their quality binding. Unlike so many other children books, DK uses heavy glossy paper-stock.
