A Great Book for Kids about Firefighters by an Award-Winning Author

Frankie the Firefighter
By Jim Woolf
Illustrated by: Izabela Ciesinska

This is a wonderful educational picture book for kids of all ages by an award winning author and a Veteran Firefighter. The illustrations are so colorful and vivid. Kids of all ages will want to become firefighters after reading this story.

The story is about Frankie, a newbie firefighter who is eager to start her career. She seems anxious and excited to be a firefighter, not fully knowing what the job will entail. But Frankie is more than ready to face her day and all its responsibilities at the fire Hall.

When Frankie gets to work, she meets all of her colleagues, and starts doing the morning rounds, such as washing the fire trucks. Just after lunch, the sirens ring and she is off to an apartment fire where she has to rescue a boy from inside a burning unit. The rescue is difficult. But Frankie does succeed and saves the little boy. Frankie believes that she will never see the little boy or the mother again after the rescue. But could this be true?

As hard as the job of a firefighter is, there are many rewards inherent in the job. Woolf accurately and vividly portrays the job of a firefighter to kids who are interested in pursuing careers in this area. I know many of my nephews want to become firefighters too. So, they will really enjoy reading Woolf’s book in the next few months.
