All four of my children love to read (or be read to).  My oldest daughter’s both love reading and have from an early age and both of my youngest children squeal with delight when it’s story time.   My children loving finding new adventures in the form of books and the stories and pictures within their pages.image
Recently I had the chance to review the new book Firehouse by award winning children’s book author and illustrator Mark Teague (Teague has also written Funny Farm and How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?).  Firehouse follows the adventures of cousins Edward and Judy as they spend a fun-filled day learning how to be firefighters.  From a fire drill that leads to a slippery slide down a fire pole, to a hysterical battle with an out-of-control fire hose, Edward is in for an action-packed adventure. And when faced with a real emergency, can Edward save the day?  You can see the trailer for the book below and you can learn more about the book here.

My youngest children were eager to have the book read to them when it arrived.  As much as they both love books, it’s sometimes not an easy task for me to get both of them settled and ready to be read to.  While we were reading Firehouse I noticed that they really paid attention to the illustrations and asked questions (something I love).  When we were done reading the book for the first time they even asked to have it read again…so it was a definite hit at our house!
Guess what?  Two MIBR readers are going to win a copy of all 3 books by Mark Teague!

  1. I want to win the books for my 4-year-old son, who loves fire trucks and is obsessed with the volunteer firehouse at the end of our street. He's always paying attention to what's going on there as we drive by!
