        From gailgibbons I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1944 Even as a little child, I was always busy putting books together Sometimes I would bind them with yarn to hold the pages together I ve always loved drawing and painting I was also a very curious child My parents tell me that I was always asking lots and lots of questions.Later, I went on to the University of Illinois, where I studied graphic design Then I moved to New York City, where I got a job doing artwork for television shows Eventually I was asked to do the artwork for a children s show While doing that show, some of the children asked me if I had ever thought of doing children s books My mind immediately recalled how much I enjoyed doing that type of thing when I was a child So I put an idea for a book together and right away a publisher bought it That book was called Willy and His Wheel Wagon Since then, over 170 books that I have written and illustrated have been published The type of books I write are non fiction books This is because I love researching so much I get to ask lots of questions, just like when I was a kid I also get to travel and meet lots of interesting people While doing research for my book Nature s Green Umbrella Tropical Rain Forests, I traveled to two islands where there are tropical rain forests, Saba and Dominica I also had a great time writing and illustrating the book I get a lot of pleasure from doing the type of work I do.

    1. This is a great, informational book for students to learn about fires. Fire! Fire! includes four different types of fire; city, country, forest, and waterfront. Each type of fire is explained on how the firefighters put the fire out and what is used on the fire trucks or other fire equipment. This would be a great fire safety lesson for younger students. I would recommend this book for younger students K-3. It is an easy read and the pictures explain everything that the text is saying. For the v [...]


    2. This book was incredible. It gives 4 different fires in 4 different areas. By doing this, it shows different ways fires can start and it also shows all the different types of firefighters such as volunteer firefighters out in the country or the smoke jumpers that put out forest fires. It also gives terms for the different equipment that they use and the different ways they get water to out out the fires. At the end it shows more fire-fighting equipment, how to prevent fires, and what to do if th [...]


    3. 5* art5* textSquirt loves this book. It goes through 4 different kinds of fires and how each is dealt with. It has all kinds of little details that he stares at and asks about. He is now very interested in smoke alarms and any kind of alarm, and it gives me a chance to talk about what we would do if our fire alarm went off. I saw that someone recommended this book for K - 3, but Squirt is only 3, and is able to understand what is happening, and asks about what he doesn't.


    4. as a "country" emergency worker, I love the accurate detail Gibbons uses in this highly engaging and readable book. It is a wonderful resource for explaining exactly how we do things, but it's also just a fun read for kids who are into fire fighters.


    5. This is not one of my favorite by Gail Gibbons but it does give really good examples of how firefighters deal with the different kinds of fires that exist. (city, country, on the water fires, etc.)


    6. Straightforward, illustrated explanation of how firefighters work to put out fires in four locations: the city, country, forest and waterfront. The books also contains fire safety tips at the end.

    8. My little boys love books about Fires and Firemen. This book is different from all the others because it compares/contrasts forest fires, rural fires, and city fires. It is a winner!
