The past week, fires have blazed throughout the state of California, causing smoky skies and gloomy weather. Fires can be scary and confusing for children who might have questions or fears about what is going to happen. To ease children’s uncertainties, we can introduce conversations about fires, fire safety, and the important role that firefighters play to keep us and our communities safe.
These conversations can be introduced with children’s books that discuss this topic in a way that is developmentally appropriate for little ones. In this article, we are sharing several popular books that offer enjoyment and learning for young children. Many children are naturally fascinated by firefighters and firetrucks, making these books great resources to keep in your classroom library all the time!
