Today’s Thanksgiving book review is The Firefighters’ Thanksgiving by Maribeth Boelts. Here’s what it’s about:
Station 1 is always a busy place. When there aren’t fires to put out there are plenty of chores to do. And on Thanksgiving Day there’s a big feast to prepare. Lou is in charge of dinner this year, but just as they finish shopping, a call comes in. They drop everything to get to the fire. Other calls interrupt Lou’s cooking throughout the day, and it looks like there may not be a Thanksgiving dinner for these firefighters.
This book has amazing illustrations by Terry Widener. The story’s good too. Sometimes we forget that not everyone sits around the Thanksgiving table with their family. This book shows that we are safe because firefighters are always ready to put out a fire, even on a special holiday. And how we can show we are grateful for what they do.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
