Uncle Rocky, Fireman #9 - "Helping Out"
A fire alarm interrupts the planning meeting for the firehouse’s Annual Crab Picking Festival. When Bob, Big Joe, and Uncle Rocky return to the station, a house in their community has been gutted and a family is homeless without any clothing or furniture. They decide to help by turning the Crab Picking Festival into a clothing and furniture drive. As they plan for the big event, Ben asks the question they are all wondering, “Do you think people will help them out?”
Helping Out is book #9 in the Uncle Rocky, Fireman series of the Glad To Do It! collection of children's picture books. The Glad To Do It! collection tells the adventures of a fire fighter (Uncle Rocky), police officers (Officer Jack, Officer Kate), and an EMT (EMT Morales) as they fight fires, stop crime, rescue people, and help neighbors. The stories are free of bad behavior and the characters are kind, friendly people who enjoy helping others. The books emphasize service to others and devotion to duty and end with the trademark "Glad to do it!” statement that children repeat with the characters.
