9781550745719: No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons)

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.

Review:

A low-key but effective approach to the serious topic of fire safety ? An attractive, useful volume.

A unique way to introduce a very important subject.

This clever rhyming story is effective in conveying the rules of fire safety to children. Colorful illustrations clearly depict correct responses to an emergency situation. At the back of the book is an easy-to-learn safety rhyme and a fire safety checklist for parents and teachers to discuss with their children. This excellent book should be in every home and school library. Highly recommended.

(This book) has just the right combination of fact, fun and fantasy to help your little one understand what to do in a fire emergency ... This story is perfect for role-playing. your children will enjoy acting out every scene from the tea-party to the firefighters’ actions. This kind of play may some day save your children’s lives.

A girl finds herself in the middle of a fire when her new friend (who happens to be a dragon) sneezes ... The girl is obviously well schooled inn fire safety, knows just what to do. The dragon, however makes some mistakes. He hides under the rug, then once he gets outside, he wants to go back for his stuffed bear. The girl sets him straight. “Don’t ever go back — that just will not do. We can get a new bear, but we can’t replace you.” Humourous colored pencil illustrations accompany the lively rhyming text, which ends with a catchy fire safety poem that kids can easily memorize to help them remember basic fire – safety rules. An entertaining way to teach or reinforce fire safety concepts, this will come in handy during fire-awareness wee.
