I “bought” this book when it was available for a free download.  Tonight, I finally read it to my son.  He will turn 5 in just a few short weeks and love all things fireman.  To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this was going to be.  I had never read books to my children from the Kindle.  It didn’t take away from the book excitement and because there wasn’t a whole lot of pictures to see, my son had to use his imagination, which I personally enjoyed but I know that might be a negative for some.  There are pictures but on my basic Kindle, they are black and white.

When we finished the story, Stephen asked if we could “buy it” so he could read it again.  I had to explain how a Kinde works.   He is now pretty excited and has already claimed another reading for tomorrow, and every day for the rest of this week.

So, I just wanted to share my recommendation.  I really liked how they used not just simple words, dumbed down sentences but comprehending sentences that my son could understand and build on.
