Firefighters and Dalmatian Dogs

Since October is Fire Safety and Prevention Month, today Storytime featured books about firefighters and their jobs. We read Firehouse by Mark Teague, Firebears The Rescue Team by Rhonda Gowler Greene and Going to the Firehouse by Mercer Mayer. They each showed some of the things that firefighters do as they wait for an emergency and what happens when they go out in their trucks. They showed how firefighters help people (and kittens!) when they need it. Also there were dalmatian dogs in all these books so, for our craft, we made one!

We also read Fire Truck by Peter Sis, about a small boy who likes fire trucks so much he actually turns into one! I'm not quite sure why, but children always love this book!
A big thank you to Chief Drake and the New Hampton Fire Department and for providing us with firefighter hats for all!
