Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "From the publisher's Benchmark Rebus series, in which the rebus theme extends to the series name itself (which replaces the last syllable with a picture of a bus), this little book introduces the job and equipment of firefighters through photographs and a text that features plenty of pictorial cues. Each double-page spread includes a full-page, color photo on the right-hand page. On the facing page is one short, large-type sentence in which a tiny photo is substituted for one or two of the nouns. For instance, a picture of a firefighter takes the place of the missing word in the line A __ hears the alarm. Appended, brief lists of vocabulary words, books, videos, and Web sites complete the presentation. The rebus device works well as both a game and a prereading activity, while the very short text and clear photos make the book very accessible to young children.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2007 Booklist"
