Youngest children can learn all about firefighters in Mark Teague's (How Do Dinosaurs Count to Ten?) playful, informative board book starring a cast of brave Dalmatians.

Edward, a Boston terrier and aspiring firefighter, visits a firehouse, and gets to try on a "red shiny hat" and climb into the driver's seat of the fire engine. Mrs. Speckle, the fire chief, gives a tour of the firehouse. Children see the bunks where the firefighters sleep, the stovetop where they cook, and can turn the book to watch them slide down the fire pole on a fire drill. When a real alarm sounds, Edward saves the day (and a stranded kitten) during his memorable visit. At least one mouse in full firefighter regalia appears on nearly every page, adding to the fun.
