I'm Brave is the most irresistible addition yet to Kate and Jim McMullan's hilarious read-aloud series: a fire truck.

He's a big red engine
With a siren,
A horn,
A tank full of water,
And a whole lotta hose

He's a good-lookin' fire truck,
And he's brave, too.
When the alarm sounds
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooooo
He's gotta drive through
Smoke and heat
Straight to a blazing fire

Honk Honk
