Dot the Fire Dog

PreS-Gr 2-Dot the Dalmatian lives in a fire station. Sometimes she plays catch with one of her firefighter friends, while other firefighters play games, read a book, or cook spaghetti. But when the fire bell rings, everyone, including Dot, puts on their helmets, jumps into the fire truck, and rushes to fight the fire. Dot and the firefighters rescue people and animals and work to put out the fire in this adaptation of Lisa Desimini's book (Scholastic, 2001). Desimini's brightly colored paintings are slightly animated. Lively music by Jon Carroll enhances this production that is adequately narrated by a well-spoken female. Students will enjoy repeated viewings and will learn from Dot's fire safety tips that conclude the video. Schools will appreciate the variety of curriculum units the film supports, including firefighters, community helpers, safety, and dogs. Public libraries will want to add this well-produced title to their materials on firefighters.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA (c) Copyright 2010.
