RiucA List of Fire Truck Books
I’ve been talking awhile about children’s pictures books in general and the fire truck book genre in particular. The Mac The Fire Truck books are, obviously, fire truck picture books. But in the interested of not being a complete self-promoter and to give people an idea the different fire truck book types there are out there and the titles available for kids, I thought I would include a list of books about fire trucks. Some of these my son has; others are ones that are rated highly and look like they would be good for kids. So, without further adieu, here is the list:
Fire Truck by Ivan Ulz – This books is a song written as a story. It comes with a CD to let kids sing along. There is also a great YouTube Video that my son and I found a couple of years ago.
Fire Truck by Peter Sis – Haven’t read it, but it is highly recommended by the School Library Journal. It has moderately good ratings on Amazon
Big Frank’s Fire Truck by Leslie McGuire – Highly rated on Amazon. My son has read it and it is great. Great picture and text.
Curious George and the Firefighters by H. A. Rey – Who doesn’t love Curious George? My son has seen the movie/show of this, but has never read the book. Highly rated.
Create Your Own Fire Truck Stick Activity Book by Steven James Petuccio – Great fun, until the stickers are all stuck. Still a good, fun read for kids.
All Aboard Fire Trucks by Teddy Slater – Great book for early readers or for parents to read aloud to kids.
The Little Fire Engine by Lois Lenski – Great story about a kid pretending to be a fireman.
Mac The Fire Truck and The Big Rig Fire by Trey Watson – Ok, so a little self promotion 🙂 In all seriousness this is one of my son’s favorite fire truck books. It is also the number one seller of the series.
Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things That Go by Richard Scarry – This is a great little book that is not exclusively about fire trucks. It is one of the highest rated children’s books on Amazon, which is well-deserved. Plus what kid doesn’t like Richard Scarry books?
The Fire Engine Book by Tibor Gergely – A little golden book classic. Easy, short read.
This is a short list…there are 261 children’s fire truck book titles on Amazon. The books listed above were some highly rated books or books that we have enjoyed as a family. I would be interested in any other fire truck book recommendations.
That’s it for today…Peace!
