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.
