"Hooray for children's author, Joyce Mitchell! She's written another adorable, educational story. This time she tells young readers all about what firefighters do. For example, they save people. They clean and cook at the fire station. What special safety equipment to they wear? Did you know they fight forest fires? Small children will be sure to love this wonderful story. It's sure to show them why firefighters are truly heroes. I highly recommend this story.

"FIREHOUSE 3: Duties of a Firefighter by Author Joyce Mitchell
"FIREHOUSE 3: Duties of a Firefighter" is another great children's book by multi-talented Author Joyce Mitchell. I have had the opportunity to read and review several of her books and she never ceases to amaze me with the varied topics that she addresses. I am equally impressed with the learning tools she provides for her young reading audience.
In this book, she elaborates on the many duties and responsibilities that firefighters face on a daily basis. When they aren't putting out fires, Author Joyce Mitchell aptly explains how they keep themselves busy with a wide variety of other challenges. The colorful illustrations by Jay Erandika really add to the enjoyment of this reading pleasure. I know my young grandchildren will definitely enjoy this book!

Up The "Down" Ladder: Simple Ideas to Overcome Depression" Dolores Ayotte said.
"A copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
And here is another wonderful learning book for children by Joyce Mitchell.
It's all about the fire fighters, with their protected gears and their great fire engine. And climbing the ladder to rescue people or pets from a burning house. That is their job.
But that is not all, they also fight forest fires or even rescue animals, teaching in schools how to behave at a fire and what to do in case they were stuck in one.
A great book with wonderful colorful drawings. Children will enjoy and follow the advise." Gisela H. Sedlmayer, author of the Talon book series said.
"This book is simple and a great lesson for young children, teaching them all about firemen and their service to the community. Nice illustrations. A very talented author!" M.A said.
"This is a wonderful book to introduce Duties of Firefighters to children. I'm Canadian and we have heard a lot in the news about the recent fire in Fort McMurray and the bravery of the fire fighters. This is a straight forward and beautifully illustrated book and a good way to introduce fire safety to children. Congratulations to Joyce Mitchell for FIREHOUSE 3: Duties of a Firefighter." Judy M.Cook said.
"Author Joyce Mitchell has published over thirty children’s books – a crown she appreciates as being a parent and working with children for over ten years, her goal is to inspire and educate kids, through her 'talking animal' and 'rhyming' books she hopes will entertain and teach children important 'life lessons' in a fun and easy manner. The illustrations for this book are the work of Joyce’s frequent illustrating partner - Jay Erandika.
We meet Smiley, the Firehouse 3 mascot who introduces firefighters Thunder Todd, Speedy Chris and Lightning Nate. Smiley explains how these firefighter work – sliding down the pole, the clothes they wear for protection, the hoses they use on their truck, fire hydrants, climbing ladders, breaking through walls to protect those in danger, saving lives, checking oil, cleaning the truck, fighting forest fires, rescuing animals, directing traffic, teaching children how to protect themselves, preparing meals, and cleaning the fire station. Joyce also offers a list of fire safety tips of children that are very useful.
This is a fine introduction to the world of firefighters – a solid way to let children know what these brave men and women do to protect us. Grady Harp, November 16" Grady Harp said.
