PreS-K—Fire safety is always a timely topic. This series blends music (CD included) with a catchy rhyming text to provide an upbeat and proactive look at being safe during a fire emergency. Each title stands alone, focusing on one important fire safety rule, such as calling 911 or planning and preparing an exit strategy at home. The entire series offers a cohesive, full-bodied look at fire safety without scaring young learners. The cartoon artwork has a vintage vibe. The music is also downloadable via a QR code.
VERDICT A strong contender to update fire safety protocol in public and school collections.
