Very informative on firehouses and firemen and fighting fires. I was bored reading it as an adult, but I'm sure it's great for kids who have the attention span for lots of words.

My son who adored fire trucks listened to this one repeatedly and admired the excellently drawn pictures of trucks and equipment. Yes, it has muppets as major characters, but everyone else and everything else is drawn concisely and clearly. This book takes fire-fighting seriously without frightening or being too light-hearted. It's matter-of-fact.

As a side note, it's old enough to have Mr. Hooper as friendly adult figure. :D

This book was chock-full of information. It might be a little ambitious for younger readers with small attention spans, but older children fascinated with all things fire station-related will be fascinated.

A great story about fire fighters and the equipment they use. But it's almost too much for the younger readers and older readers might not be as entertained by the sesame street characters. Very informative, though, and good advice for the little ones at the end regarding fires and being safe.

This must be a republication; my review for the same title but older applies to this cover picture.
