Frankie the Firefighter
Illustrated by Izabela Ciesinska
Frankie has learned what firefighting is all about: washing fire trucks, understanding the tools of the job, and, of course, learning how to fight the fires. All of the training and hard work pays off when Frankie actually gets to fight her first fire. Not only that, but Frankie becomes a hero by rescuing a little boy. Many people picture firefighters as brave men who face danger every day, but Frankie shows us all that women can excel at firefighting, too.

This is a wonderful educational picture book for kids of all ages by an award winning author and a Veteran Firefighter. The illustrations are so colorful and vivid. Kids of all ages will want to become firefighters after reading this story. The story is about Frankie, a newbie firefighter who is eager to start her career. She seems anxious and excited to be a firefighter, not fully knowing what the job will entail. But Frankie is more than ready to face her day and all its responsibilities at the fire station. When Frankie gets to work she meets all of her colleagues, and sets out to do the morning rounds, such as washing the fire trucks. Just after lunch, the sirens ring and she is off to an apartment fire where she has to rescue a boy from inside a burning unit. The rescue is difficult. But Frankie does succeed. When she returns to the station, Frankie thinks that she will never see the little boy or the mother again. Could that be true?
