Next week is Fire Prevention Week in the USA.
This post has a book review - links to my Fire English, Math and Bundle and at the very bottom a pinterest link to more books to read.
This is a great picture story book for young readers and start the conversation about why we need to mindful of keeping ourselves safe and the great job our firefighters do.
I like this book because it has clear text and the pictures are sharp. The page that shows the back of the fire truck is engaging and great for oral labeling in a shared text group.
