This innovative box which measures about 6 X 6 inches is packed with more than you could ever imagine or expect from a board book.  First, it's about fire trucks and firefighters.  Packed with diverse images, a woman suits up for the job, each turn of the sturdy pages brings you to another part of a firefighter's day on the job.  You got to dress 'em up - so the firefighter standing there on the page in his underwear needs you to lift a few flaps and get him ready to do his job.

Can you sound the alarm?  Lift the ladder?  You get the idea.  But after you've read through the book a few times, you and/or your young reader/listener can follow the directions on the box to actually unfold the "book" and transform it into a cardboard fire truck ready for action!  How cool is that?
