Uncle Rocky, Fireman, Officer Jack, and EMT Morales
star in the
"Glad to do it!" Series
These are good books for young boys and girls.
Spring has arrived and with it the DC Cherry Blossoms. The blossoms also mean the beginning of a new season of shows/book fairs where we get to meet new boys and girls who love Firemen, Police Officers, and EMTs and will enjoy meeting Uncle Rocky, Officers Jack and Kate, and EMT Morales in the true stories captured in the "Glad to do it!" series.
Each story recounts an actual emergency response and first responders and their departments are thanked and honored in the front of the book. Through these stories, children learn that fire, police, and EMTs are adults who can be trusted to hep them. To learn more about the books and meet the author, James Burd Brewster, please see his interview on Good Day Northern Michigan which is posted on this page just below these recommended favorites.
Several "Glad to do It!" books are now in Spanish. To see them, click here.

How to Read and Enjoy Uncle Rocky, Fireman
"Jim, the books we purchased are quite worn now. Our boys really like them. They were impressed that we "actually" knew you. I will gladly review your new book....is it okay if I read it to the boys? Again, thanks for writing the books. Our older boys have ADHD and learning disabilities and your books kept their attention." - - Cheryl Carter
"I love your books. Ben usually has a very whiney attitude when I ask him to do something. Not lately. Well, not since we bought your books. Now, when I ask him to do something he pauses and says, "Glad to do it!" I love it. It's such a joy to hear.
