GUEST POST: Why The Boy Who Dreamt of Fire Trucks is special and unique to me
I actually wrote this book by the seat of my pants. It was a normal day, my son drew a picture of a fire truck, and I sat with him to write a story to go along with it. After writing two sentences I realized they rhymed with one another, so I challenged myself to continue to write. Before I knew it, I wrote a whole story. Of course, a couple of words needed to be changed around, but the story was written in a matter of minutes. I think the words came to me so fluidly because they weren’t forced; I had a creative spurt that evolved from watching my son play with fire trucks.
I also wanted my book to be inspiring with a central message that would capture the hearts and minds of young children. I have read dozens of books based on firemen, fire trucks, and fire stations, but I haven’t read a book quite like this. A lot of the books were informational which is great, but I wanted to write a book that would motivate my son and children everywhere to work really hard and dream beyond their wildest imagination. I thought it would be really cool to project the possibility of dreams becoming a reality. Another factor that makes this book unique is that it's based on the dreams of a real little boy.
