A Visit to the Sesame Street Firehouse
written by Dan Elliot 1983 Random House
Illus. in full color. "Big Bird, Ernie, and Grover are invited to visit the firehouse where all aspects of fire fighting and fire prevention are explained. The trucks, equipment, and fire fighters (including a woman) are realistically depicted. Straightforward and informative, this is a serviceable addition to community helper collections." -School Library Journal.
I had a lot of help with the research for this book from the New York City fire department as well as from the local fire department in Putnam, CT, where I lived at the time. The unmasked firefighter who greets Ernie, Grover, and Big Bird is my brother-in-law, Ron.
