The peace of the fire station is shattered one morning when the alarm rings. Everyone has a role to play at the scene of a big blaze. This book combines an exciting rescue story with a detailed look at how firefighters work. There are plenty of machine and animal noises to join in with along the way. It's time to get busy with machines that roar, whizz, vroom, and zoom! The stories feature a popular vehicle as the central character, and involve a group of animal characters in a supporting role. A detailed spread on different parts of the vehicle will help children understand what makes up the machines and will help familiarize them with vehicle vocabulary.
