Book Review #7: I’d like to be a Fireman

Picture Book Review for toddlers

Wouldn’t it be great to be a fireman?

Big fire trucks, bright lights and a cat to

rescue are all waiting to be discovered

in this amazing board book.

I’d like to be a Fireman is about the reader child imagining himself as a fireman and thinking of what all fun he will be having that day by wearing a fireman’s uniform along with boots and hat, putting out fires, helping cars stuck in mud and finally returning to the fire station in the big noisy fire truck.

My review –

This book came to us at a time when D was 2 years old. It was a time when he was highly interested in vehicles and thus I’d like to be a Fireman was among his favourites until he turned 4-years old.

FIretruck illustrations
Big and bold illustrations from the book good for capturing the attention of the toddlers.
  • This is a board book perfect for toddlers with big and striking colourful illustrations and short texts on each of the 8 pages.
  • There are plenty of references to colours in this book – black boots, yellow hat, orange flames, red fire truck. This could make for a nice game of pointing out to colours or naming them.
  • It can also make for a pretend game of being a fireman.
  • There is a cat in the illustrations on each page. It will be fun for the toddlers spotting it.
