ð No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons) ¾ Download by Ò Jean E. Pendziwol After reading this cautionary tale about inviting dragons to tea and them setting fire to the tablecloth and curtains with a fiery sneeze, Son of Athos wanted to be assured that we have no pepper in the house Pepper s ok, said I Only Dragons sneeze fire No No NO pepper I thought that the author did an excellent job at teaching the reader about fire safety via the story of the little girl s encounter with a dragon in her kitchen I think that using the example of the little girl knowing what to do during a fire, can help students feel like they too can remain calm if a fire breaks out near them, and can teach them what they could do if they are ever found to be near a fire Not only that, but the example that the little girl sets in teaching the dragon how to combat a fire, can serve as an example to other kids that they too can lead others and teach them to be fire smart savvy If I were to have this book in my future classroom, I would choose to use it during a month week in which our school would be practicing safety drills for all purposes.
I think this book does a good job of what it sets out to do Teaching basics about what to do in a house fire, and giving parents a starting point for discussion, in a way that is not negitive or scary And of course showing children why dragons really shouldn t come over for tea even if they re nice dragons, just in case they re wondering.
Includes fire safety tips for parents to share in the back.
