THINK AND PLAY THE SOCIAL SCOUTS WAY:
FIREFIGHTER LEO

Illustrated By
Alen Haljevac


Children’s books play a great part in a child growing up and learning to read, and understanding the meaning of sharing. Reading Children's books can also help a child learn to use their imagination to their fullest extent and explore the vast possibilities. For example, by going off on a adventure with their newly opened imagination. Books can also be shared,  be read together or just while lounging and relaxing.

 What’s so wondrous about children’s books is the inspiration of what a child may want to grow up to be. Books are one of a child’s best advisor, a coach as I may say to what they dream of becoming when they grow up.

  Amy and Heather has created a children’s book “Firefighter Leo To The Rescue”, it’s a great learning book of how a child name Leo learns to pretend to be a firefighter. Leo helps to explain to the reader of what a firefighter is and what their job entails.It explains what a firefighter job is and also everything about them. Then Leo knows what he needs to imagine to be a firefighter, it’s something he can use his imagination to play by himself and have a good time. 

 The illustrations are well thought out to and and helps teaches young readers how to pretend and to have fun of being a firefighter. This book has  also sequence cards to play with to put in order of what comes first in firefighting playtime and corresponding shapes to show to ‘Plan, to Play and to Put it Away’. 

 I enjoyed this book very much with its smart illustrations and the fun way of learning about Fire firefighters and how to have fun with your imagination.
