Product Details


Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 17, 2010:
“Nolan’s unassuming storytelling is perfect for reading aloud. …This is a fascinating story that will appeal to those looking for a unique perspective on American cultural history.”

Review, Booklist, June 1, 2010:
“A four-watt bulb installed in the firehouse during horse-and-buggy days glows through decades of change: from horses to automobiles; from axes and buckets to hoses and oxygen masks; from radios to television and computers: and from small town to contemporary city…. A good choice for children who seek offbeat nonfiction, this is also a fresh approach for units on community helpers.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews:
“The little-town-over time theme—and the fire trucks—exert plenty of child-friendly appeal.”
