Stop Drop and Roll
by Margery Cuyler
Little Jessica worries about everything: waking up in time for school, filling her dog's water dish, learning new steps in ballet, doing her spelling homework. (She's not even sure how to spell "worry" -- "Wurry"? "Werry"? "Worry"?) But now her teacher, Mr. Martin, has given her something new to fret about: It's Fire Prevention Week, and her class has to present what they're learning to the entire school. "Oh, no," moaned Jessica.


No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons)
by Jean Pendziwol
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, No 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.

Fire! Fire!

The alarm sounds. Fire! Fire! Big trucks roll out of the firehouse and race to the scene. Out come the soft hoses and aerial ladders. Whether the fire is in the city or in the country, on the waterfront or in a deep forest, firefighters are on the scene in moments, ready to attack the blaze. Gail Gibbons, author of more than 100 books, brings her special talent for making complex subjects understandable and entertaining for young readers to the topic of fire safety.

When he helps extinguish the fire and rescues a young girl, Fireman Small becomes a hero in Tinytown. Now back in print in full color, Lois Lenski's timeless story of Fireman Small and his little fire engine is sure to delight a new generation of young readers.


Firefighters A to Z
by Chris L. Demarest
Every day, brave firefighters come to our rescue. When the fire alarm sounds, men and women put on their uniforms, slide down the firehouse pole, jump in their big red trucks, and rush to save our lives. From the minute the fire alarm rings, the day of a firefighter is filled with adventure -- and danger. Wherever there is a fire, we can be sure that firefighters will always be there.
