“Pink fire trucks: Los camiones de bomberos de color rosado” Gladys Elizabeth Barbieri

Rated 5 stars ***** Big Tent Books. 2013.

PinkFireTrucksThe children are very excited to celebrate Career Day at their school. Gladys wants to be a firefighter when she grows up but feels discouraged by Rudy, a boy in her class, who insists she should “stick to a girl job.” With grace and strength, Gladys proves that girls can do anything boys can do.

“Pink fire trucks” is a bilingual picture book which shows young girls they can break out of the traditional job roles for women, and expand their horizons into careers previously closed to them.

Recommended for ages 6-10.
