BILLY BLUE HAIR: WHY ARE FIRE TRUCKS RED? cover image
Kids liked this. "I liked it because there are two drivers and the one in the back is COOL!" "I liked it because it shows lots of fire engines, cars and fire stations." The most animated watcher was the youngest - a two-year-old who pointed and made excited noises. It is a bit long and works best when viewed in segments. Since its all facts, not many kids could watch it all the way through in one sitting. One seven-year-old said, "I've been to the fire station about 100 times. This is all stuff I already know." An eight-year-old said, " I saw a couple of things I didn't know before."
For children interested in learning more about fire trucks and firefighters, this is perfect. You learn all kinds of facts about fire truck and how firemen respond to emergency situations. It is probably too detailed to appeal to the average preschooler, unless they are very interested in the topic. The content is extremely accurate. It is about people who put their lives on the line to help others in need showing men and women from various backgrounds working as firefighters. It uses an animated character which is appropriate for this age range and never talks down to kids. It explains the way firefighters work using verbiage that young children can easily understand, even expanding their vocabulary a bit as it explains aobut ladder trucks and aerial ladders. Very clear images and narration.
Billy Blue Hair has lost his dog Doogie. As animated Billy searches for Doogie within the live action video, he becomes your guide and educator as you learn fun and quirky facts about fire fighters, fire engines and how to battle a fire.
