Last night at the Fire Station… With a jingly-jang, the telephone rang. RING-RING! RING-RING! Firefighter Flo jumps out of bed! There’s a fire and only a pro like Flo and her team can help. Read along as the firefighters put on their fireproof suits, rush off in their truck, douse the fire with the big hose, and rescue the family pet. The CLANG of the siren and WHOOSH of the fire will have parents and kids reading aloud together.
The Big Jobs, Bold Women series introduces even the youngest readers to women as leaders in unusual jobs with teams relying on them — all with bold art and fun onomatopoeia. With dynamic illustrations from Dan Yaccarino, Nickelodeon character designer for The Backyardians, and energetic verse from Andrea Zimmerman, best-selling author of Trashy Town, Firefighter Flo is the perfect read for kids who love to watch the big red fire trucks rush by.
"It’s an exciting story, and one that’s chock-full of descriptive words that will help build young readers’ vocabularies. Aiding that goal are the bold and bright digital illustrations, which have a sleek, classic vibe and make use of pops of red to keep young (and older) eyes dancing around the page. This one will be a popular choice among librarians, caregivers, and readers for years to come. Readers will be happy to have Flo in their homes day or night!" — Kirkus Reviews
