What people are saying about Rocky Hill, Fireman:
“Any child could relate with Ben and Luke getting to visit with their uncle Rocky and see what it's like to be a fireman. When my son Dan was a little boy he loved the fire trucks and would have loved these books.” - - Maggie Rittichier - Grandmother.
“Ben and I read the first one, well....... as far as we could. He really liked it.” Kris Tidwell - Mom.
“Something’s Missing, #2 in the Rocky Hill series, will capture the imagination of young children ~ especially the boys. Exploring the firehouse, sharing a meal, and a glimpse of a real day in a firehouse. The book also reinforces manners. We look forward to reading these books and more in the series to our Grandchildren for many years. - - Hank & Maureen Beyer, Delmar, NY.
I hope you enjoy reading the Rocky Hill, Fireman Book series with your children as much as I enjoyed telling it to my boys.
Rocky Hill, Fireman is a series of stories I told to my two oldest sons in 1989 and 1990 when they were 4.5 and 6. My boys quickly memorized the sequence of events initiated by the alarm bell and developed hand and body motions that pantomimed getting dressed for the fire. They enjoyed making the sounds of starting the truck and testing the horn. They looked like traffic cops when they held up their hands to stop traffic so the fire truck could race to the fire. The best part was the ending when they mimicked Uncle Rocky as he said, "Glad to do it!"
This book would not be possible without: Ben and Luke, my eager boys, who made telling these stories so much fun; Katie, my loving wife, who created the environment where I could tell these stories and who tells me each Rocky Hill rough draft is “Great” even though we know better; Dayna, whose illustrations have brought Rocky Hill to life exactly as Luke had always imagined.
