For the child who says, "I want to be a firefighter when I grow up!" And for any child who wants a gentle behind-the-scenes look at being a firefighter.
My brother and I both want to be firefighters, but we can’t decide what kind to be. When firefighters from Fire District 1 visit our school for Fire Safety Day, we learn that there are firefighters who fight forest fires and work at airports to help with airplane emergencies. Did you know that there are other kinds of firefighters too? There are firefighters who figure out how a fire started and fight fires before they even happen. Maybe I’ll be a firefighter, too?

With this story blending narrative with nonfiction, readers meet the many different kinds of firefighters who do so much to support our communities.

I Want to Be a Firefighter is part of an I Can Read series that introduces young readers to important community helpers.

I really enjoyed I Want to be a Firefighter.
This is a nice early reader book, with the occasional word my child needed help on. The words are written big and clear on the page, separate from the illustrations to make them easier to see.
I loved that it went into detail about the different jobs firefighters do, as well as where they work. Another big plus is that the author didn't just limit it to "firemen."
