What is it that fascinates kids so about fire trucks and firefighters? Being a former little girl, I was more interested in Barbies and baby dolls than trucks and fires; but as the mom of four boys, I know that many little boys love anything to do with firefighters. My ex-husband was a firefighter before we met, and my second son especially had an early childhood obsession with everything firefighter related.
Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks lets kids get up close to firefighters and their equipment and is a Dove Family Approved series. I checked out Volumes 1 & 2 of Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks with my kids, and we found the DVDs both entertaining and informative. Volume 1 introduces you to different types of fire trucks, like pumper trucks, aerial trucks, and specialty trucks. Real-life firefighter Bryan “The Rat” Ratushniak takes you along on a road trip to fire stations across the country, and there’s lots of original sing-along music by James Coffey. Volume 2 talks about the history of fire trucks, the different jobs that firefighters do to fight a fire, and Fireman Jim talks about safety tips.
I especially like the safety tips provided in the book and DVDs. Two members of my extended family have lost their homes and possessions to fires; thankfully, everyone made it out of the houses safely both times. The DVDs and book discuss fire prevention, the importance of having an exit plan and practicing fire drills, calling 911, and stop-drop-and-roll.
