This rhyming text tells you everything you need to know to be safe if a fire breaks out. Placing our hero in a hotel for the night allows the lessons of fire safety to be reinforced in an unfamiliar setting and allows the reader to emphasize that no matter where you are the rules and knowledge you need to stay safe and exit a building on fire are universal.

Very strange little story about a fireman who can't sleep and goes to a hotel for the night. The rhyme scheme is what bumped this up to 3 stars, otherwise I felt the story was a little strange.

Fireman Small is a total badass. And a really nice guy.

Fireman Small is a short black man with a large nose; the rest of the characters are various animals. Some of the illustrations are in panels, so this book might not work well with a group.

Checked this out because of our never-ending need for more firefighter books. Overall the story came off a bit odd. Glad my son didn't care for it either.

This is one of my mother and my favorite books to read together. The rhyming is fun, and the pictures are very interesting and funny!
