The author recommends this book for ages 4 – 6 and P – K. It is a most important lesson for the little ones to learn at an early age. With the parents reading the book to them, it will not seem scary and I would recommend they make sure to ask the kids if they have any questions while reading it to them. It really is an interactive book for them at this age.
Basically it is the story of four friends that go on a hike. (See how cute they are to the upper left?). In addition to Bart the Bear there is Charlie the dog, Oberon the tortoise and Bella the rabbit.
In the first example of fire safety, Bart tosses a match with a ‘spark’ into the leaves. He was scolded for doing that as he didn’t realize what damage a spark could do in the woods. He did put the fire out after cooking hot dogs, however.
The next example proves to be more of a calamity in that Bart the Bear is separated from the other three. He gets hungry and decides to make another fire to toast a marshmallow. (Who does not like marshmallows on a campfire?). Unfortunately this time he is not as lucky as he falls asleep. When he awakens, he feels the heat of a fire and knows he is in trouble. Luckily this story ends well for all of them and valuable lessons are taught and learned by all.
Never ever play with fire or anything that would make one such as a match. This is a lesson that must be taught by parents at an early age and reinforced throughout the early years of the kids. I would recommend at least until age 10 that it needs repeating.
Well done to the author and the illustrator for bringing such an important topic into houses. And, dealing with it so that it is not a scary item.
