Excitement and fun are in store for this special boy as he heads off to visit his uncle who is a real live firefighter. At the fire station, the boy and his uncle jump into the fire truck where the boy imagines racing off to a raging house fire. But when it comes time to hook up the fire hose to the fire hydrant, he is in for an unexpected splash. Tony Ganem’s colorful cartoon illustrations highlight the action with a touch of humor. Written in rhyming text by Chicago firefighters James McDonald and Brooks Watson, Splash Down is great way to acquaint junior firefighters with the thrilling and challenging tasks involved in being a firefighter.
