A few months back we set a fire safety plan in place when we replaced our home’s smoke alarms. Through practice, reading books, and educational activities you can teach your preschoolers all about fire safety in a way that isn’t scary.
These 10 fire safety books are great read aloud books for your preschool aged children during fire prevention week or when you act out your family’s fire safety plan.
Fire Safety Books for Preschoolers
Pete the Cat// Firefighter Pete: My preschooler has a current obsession with Pete the Cat books. “Pete and his classmates are excited about their field trip to the firehouse. They get to slide down the pole, meet all the brave firefighters, and even try on their helmets and gear. But when the alarm goes off, it’s time for Pete to jump on the fire truck, grab the hose, and help the firefighters save the day!”
The Berenstain Bears Visit the Firehouse: Another classic kid favorite. The Bears head to the fire station to learn what it takes to save the day!
A Day at the Fire Station: “From fast fire trucks and out-of-control hoses to sliding down fire poles and saving the day, this exciting and funny Richard Scarry story will have little ones asking to read it over and over again. Includes a sheet of stickers!”
Crusty Cupcake’s Christmas Catastrophe: Fire Safety for Children: “This book will teach children about the true meaning of Christmas, identifying their talents and about working with a group to accomplish a goal.”
Sparky the Fire Dog: “In colorful, appealing illustrations, Sparky takes a group of young animals through the neighborhood, pointing out hazards, giving basic fire prevention and safety tips, and showing them how to be prepared in case of an emergency.”
