Review: What a educational book, I love that this showcases a female firefighter.
Frankie teaches all areas of being a firefighter from saving animals to stopping dangerous fires. The book teaches about all the heavy equipment they have and what they are used for. The cut outs at the back of the book are wonderful as kids get the glance to play.
I love how inspiring this whole series of book are, teaching so much and encouraging to young girls guiding them into skills and careers that are available to them.
