This holiday honors fire department dogs. What do dogs and fire departments have in common? Fire hydrants! That’s why today’s book review is on:
Lou thinks he’s a toilet because all day, every day, dogs use him to…well, you know. He knows he’s useful, but deep down he feels like he has something more inside him. Spoiler alert—Lou does figure out his true purpose as a fire hydrant, but you’ll have to read (and look at the illustrations) to find out how. Breanna Carzoo cleverly and humorously uses a fire hydrant to tell a story about self-worth, living up to your potential, and finding your true purpose. Her bold, colorful illustrations are expressive, cheerful, and essential to telling the story that is not shown in the text. She depicts a diverse cast of humans and canines, as well as a rascal cat (be sure to look carefully to see the cat’s crucial role in the story). Really fun read!
