Title: Fire Truck Factory
Author: Catherine Anderson
Ages: 3 years – 6 years
My 3-year has really gotten into wanting to know how things are made. He looks around the room and asks “How make shower curtain?” “How make counters?” How make mirror?” “How make towels?” – until I about lose my mind. Imagine my excitement to discover this book that explains how fire trucks (another of his favorite things) are made. It integrates lots of photographs with labeled parts and walks you through the whole process. There are lots of books about Fire Trucks but this one earns an award from me for having a new twist on that same old topic.
I think any kid who loves fire trucks would enjoy this one to add some variety to their reading.
