The Best Firefighter & Fire Truck Books for Kids

Enter for a chance to win a full preschool homeschool curriculum!

When my oldest son was little, he was completely obsessed with trucks. And, fire trucks and firefighters were at the top of his list of pretend play. He had a full fire firefighter outfit, complete with coat, hat, ax, and even an oxygen tank. Once a week or so, he would deck himself out and we’d head to the local mall where they had a coin operated fire truck. Without a single care if anyone was looking at him, he immersed himself in his world of fighting fires, turning on sirens, and bravely driving that big red truck.

When my mom accidentally forgot about a roast in the oven when she was staying with us, the smoke alarms went off, and our local fire department responded right away. Thankfully, there was no fire–just a lot of smoke–but my son thought having that fire truck outside our house was awesome. The wonderful crew let him climb around in the truck and push some buttons before they declared that all was well and they could leave us with our burnt supper.

If you have a little fire fighter in your life, then this list is for you. I am featuring some of our all time favorite, tried and true, books about firefighters and fire trucks. We have read some of these so many times over the years that I know them by heart.

Be sure to scroll down and enter our amazing giveaway this week. The winner will receive a valuable full curriculum for preschool!

Happy reading!

    Sharing this with my daughter-in-love.
    My grandson LOVES fire trucks — and is it possible for one to have too many books about them? I don’t think so.

    1. Anne Campbell (Post author)

      No–never too many!

    Surprisingly none of my boys were ever that big into fire trucks; construction equipment, however, is still pretty big with my oldest.

      Ah–yes! Construction equipment, fire trucks, motorcycles, monster trucks–we went through them all with 3 boys!
