Book saves child from fire

A young child who read Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, a children’s fire safety book, managed to save herself from a fire by crawling along the floor to escape the smoke, just as she’d learned from the book and the author talk.

I love stories like that! How books can help save readers lives in many ways (physically, emotionally). Check out the full story at Dayna Hilton–the author and firefighter’s–blog.
