From the Series Community Helpers

In Firefighters, emergent readers will learn how firefighters put out fires and keep people safe. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage early readers as they discover what firefighters do on the job.

A labeled diagram helps readers identify the equipment in a fire house, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about firefighters online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Firefighters also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.

Firefighters is part of Jump!’s Community Helpers series.
