Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 2. At the firehouse on Visitor's Day, littleason meets Captainack, sees where the firefighters live, watches them slide down the pole and dress for a fire, observes a demonstrations of the pumper and ladder trucks, and even sits in the driver's seats. Back at home, he builds a firehouse of blocks and dreams of riding to a fire with Captainack. The naive-style pictures, featuring objects and Dalmatian dog characters against white backgrounds, are clear, but the profusion of bright colors and patterns can actually make some objects difficult to discern and the compositions confusing to see as a whole. On the plus side, Rockwell has a good sense of what intrigues young children and offers just enough story to keep the presentation from becoming dry. For larger libraries. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2003 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

As she did with Fire Engines, Anne Rockwell wryly populates her At the Firehouse with dalmatians, as she takes readers inside the station on Visitor's Day. Jason and his friend Camilla meet Captain Jack, a real firefighter, and sit in the driver's seat of Engine Number One (the pumper truck) and Engine Number Two (the ladder truck).

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-A straightforward look at firefighters and the equipment they use. Rockwell's text follows young Jason as he tours the local firehouse, meets some firefighters, and even gets to sit in the driver's seat in the fire engines. True fans won't find much that's new here, but for some young listeners, it's a perfect introduction to the popular topic. All of the characters are Dalmatians, pictured standing upright and dressed in human clothes. At times it's difficult to determine which character is which, but their attire does help to differentiate among them. Rockwell's brightly colored illustrations are painted in a childlike style, though they include quite a few (occasionally blurred) details that belie their apparent simplicity. The enduring appeal of all things related to fire fighting as well as Rockwell's popularity ensure a place for this book in most libraries.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
