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!
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.
