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.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
