Cool Idea of the Day: Firefighter Story Times

Seattle's Fire Department and Public Libraries are partnering once again for Firefighter Story Times, a reading program aimed at increasing literacy and raising awareness of home fire safety. The event had traditionally been held in October, but last year was moved to summer.
During June and July, Seattle firefighters are reading No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons) by Jean E. Pendziwol, illustrated by Martine Gourbault (Kids Can Press) to preschool children at seven libraries in the city. They focus on important fire safety messages, and also allow the children to explore a fire engine and try on the firefighters' protective gear.
