“It’s the formula for success for preschoolers—Curious George and fire trucks! Curious George and the Firefighters is a story based on H. A. and Margret Rey’s popular primate and painted in the original watercolor and charcoal style. Firefighters are a famously brave lot, but can they withstand a visit from one curious monkey?”

Fire Drill

“The children in this kindergarten class know what to do when there’s a fire drill. They put down their toys and get in line. Next, they file out of the building, slowly and calmly. Then, they listen to the teacher. And when the teacher says “Okay!” the children know everything is safe. Back they go to their classroom to learn and play.”

Busiest Fire Fighters Ever!

“Sparky, Smokey, Snozzle, and Squirty are the valiant firepigs who keep Busytown safe. But their busy days are much more than just putting out fires. They come when Hilda drops her keys in the drain, and they help Mr. Frumble with his pickle car. It’s also important that they keep the firehouse neat and clean. But, of course, putting out fires may be their most important job.”

Plan and Prepare!

Young readers will feel like heroes as they sing along to this catchy song about fire safety. This paperback book comes with online music access.”

Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill

“Stop! Drop! Roll! Learning the rules of fire safety is a lot more fun (and less scary) when demonstrated by a charming and diverse group of animals. Alligator, Panda, Octopus, and the others work hard to master the rules of fire safety and perform the perfect fire drill, but thinking about fire is a bit nerve-wracking, and each of them reacts differently — often with hilarious results. Sprinkled with fascinating facts about animal behavior, this second story about the characters in Miss Mingo’s one-of-a-kind class is sure to appeal to readers of all stripes.”

I am Fire

“An early reader on the benefits of fire and fire safety explains how fire is used for such good purposes as cooking and lighting up birthday cake but cautions youngsters about the dangers of fire out of control. Original.”

No Dragons for Tea

“While out for a walk with her mom, a little girl has the surprise of her life — she meets a real, live, fire-breathing dragon! Now this dragon is nothing to be afraid of — in fact, he’s so friendly that she invites him home for tea. But their afternoon snack is suddenly interrupted when the dragon sneezes and sets the table ablaze. Luckily, the girl knows just what to do, and she teaches her new friend to be fire smart, too. With its funny, rhyming verse and spunky illustrations, Dragons for Tea shows kids that learning about fire safety doesn’t have to be scary. The story ends with “The Dragon’s Fire Safety Rhyme” — a fun and easy way to remember what to do in case of fire.”
