A young boy knows how lucky the firefighter is – riding in a big firetruck, playing with the firehouse dog, and sliding down the firehouse pole – but if he ever needs help, the firefighter will be there to help him, so he’s lucky, too! Lucky Him: He’s the Fireman is a wonderfully simple story for children about one of their favorite community helpers! The vibrant water color illustrations were created by real-life FDNY Lieutenant Josef Fischer. Songwriter Joe Guida’s uplifting children’s tune (available separately) makes Lucky Him: He’s the Fireman enjoyable to read AND sing!
