Firefighters to the Rescue (Lego City)

Firefighters to the Rescue (Lego Nonfiction) Penlope Arlon. 2018. Scholastic. 24 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Emergency! Someone needs our help. Let’s go!

Premise/plot: LEGO City: Firefighters to the Rescue is one of the books in the LEGO Nonfiction series. It blends nonfiction narrative—straightforward facts about firefighters and fire stations—with dialogue between LEGO characters. It blends photographs from the real world with illustrations from LEGO City. It also includes suggestions for how to play with LEGO.

My thoughts: I like it. I like the nonfiction narrative better than the LEGO dialogue. But I think both have their place.
