Fire Trucks




BOOK 1: Fire Truck by Peter Sis
Matt LOVES fire trucks.  One morning he wakes up and he IS a fire truck!  He has many adventures saving a teddy bear, a cat, and turning on his siren.  Simple, fun, and perfect for a toddler storytime.

ACTION RHYME: Fireman, Fireman, Turn Around
Here’s a Fireman version of “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear” that I wrote:

Fireman Fireman, turn around
Fireman, fireman, touch the ground
Fireman, fireman, drive the truck
Fireman, fireman, don’t get stuck!
Fireman, fireman, hurry to the fire
Fireman, fireman, spray the water higher.
Fireman, fireman, give a shout,
Fireman, fireman, you put the fire out! Hooray!

ACTION SONG: Drive the Fire Truck
from the Old Town School of Folk Music album Songs for Wiggleworms

BOOK 2: Fire Fighter PiggyWiggy by Christyan Fox
I hadn’t read the Piggy Wiggy books before, but after reading this one for storytime, he’s won me over.  With bright, bold pictures and simple text – this one is a winner.  My group was quick enough to realize that Piggy Wiggy rescues a teddy bear, just like Matt does in Fire Truck by Peter Sis.

    • Thank you for this great plan. Very helpful! Would you consider changing “Fireman” to “Firefighter” in the turn around song? It even has the same number of syllables as Teddy Bear so it is more inclusive AND sounds better! 😉
