Read this glowing review from Readers Favorite about my new children’s picture book.

Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite

I Want to be a Firefighter is a children’s picture book written by Jean M. Cogdell. What would it be like to be a firefighter when you’re all grown up? You’d get to wear big black boots, a yellow safety jacket, and a bright red firefighter’s helmet. There’d be fires to fight, sometimes requiring climbing high up on ladders to reach the blaze and put it out with your hose. Sometimes, your job would be to help find lost dogs and rescue cats who’ve gotten themselves stuck far up in trees. Firefighters usually have best friends who are dogs. They’re spotted and black and white and are on call for emergencies just like the firefighters themselves. It’s such a busy occupation that, by the time night comes, a firefighter wants nothing more than the comfort of his bed and his firefighting-companion puppy.

Jean M. Cogdell’s I Want to be a Firefighter will thrill any kid who gets excited when they pass a firehouse or see a fire engine rushing off towards an emergency. What do firemen do? This book helps kids visualize exactly what being a firefighter entails — from a kid’s perspective. It’s also a great way to introduce that endlessly fascinating subject: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And yes, kids do have simplified views of what those grown-up careers or jobs maybe, but it’s powerful to get them visualizing themselves in the future. The illustrations work perfectly with the story and do a good job of conveying the busy day that the young firefighter and his puppy have. I Want to be a Firefighter is highly recommended.

A surprising read with something for everyone

I haven’t posted a book review in quite a while, so thought it was time.

First I must confess, I don’t read a lot of books by James Patterson having OD on them years ago. However, after watching an interview on Stephen Colbert, my curiosity got the better of me and I downloaded a sample. I almost always download a free sample before handing over my hard-earned cash.

What a nail-biting surprise.

Not the cover, anyone can recognize the book, guess the author to be James Patterson and that you’re getting a political thriller. But everything else was a pleasant surprise.

 Don’t click away just because you may not be a Clinton fan.

Keep reading. The only bits of Bill Clinton I recognized in the book is authenticity for Presidential details and procedures.

I did not find this to be a partisan story but an American story, and a story of survival. So, set aside your skepticism, sit back and enjoy the ride.

The tale woven by Mr. Patterson is filled with suspense as he shows the frailties, limitations, and vulnerabilities of a country. He explores how much we’ve come to rely on technology and how difficult, if not impossible, life would become without it.

What would happen if, in one keyboard stroke, all internet services vanished?

Can you even begin to envision what would happen to your life?

  • ATMs – banks can’t verify your account
  • Retirement – what retirement account
  • Medical – hospital records gone, automated machines such as oxygen, medicine, and robotic surgeries grind to a halt.
  • Airports – no navigation systems, ground or air
  • Water – filtration plants stop, no clean water
  • Electrical – grids across the nation go dark
  • Cell – towers no longer transmit

And the list goes on. Our country would be thrown back to the dark ages. This is the premise of Mr. Patterson’s book. About not only what could happen to our lives but also what steps the government would need to take to keep us safe.

I give The President is Missing 5 Stars!
