Each October firefighters and fire stations recognize Fire Prevention Week which encourages people to make fire safety plans, change their batteries in Co2 alarms and smoke detectors, cook safely, know at least two routes out of their homes and so much more. At the library for our youngest patrons I always do a Fire Prevention Week storytime. This year the books selected are:
The Fire Station by Robert Munsch – Micheal and Sheila just happen to be walking by a fire station. Sheila is very curious and much drama ensues resulting in an escorted ride home for Michael and Sheila.
Fire Truck Dreams by Sharon Chriscoe – Fire truck has had an exhausting day keeping the town and people he loves safe. As he drifts of to sleep he has big dreams of being a hero and celebrating with s’mores.
The Fire Station by Aaron Carr – This is a perfect non-fiction title to introduce the role of firefighters and the fire station to our youngest readers combing easy text and captivating pictures.
This is the Firefighter by Laura Goodwin – Gives a snap shot of a day in the life of a busy firefighter and his crew as they navigate all of their roles as firefighters.
So, why not read a book, check out a fire station open house and start teaching our children about the importance of fire safety, firefighters and the library too!
Storytime takes place Wednesdays at 10:30 at our Amherstview and Napanee locations. All are welcome to attend.
