This month we’re highlighting resources about community helpers on the Watch Me Grow Blog. Every child is fascinated with fire trucks and firefighters, and we all depend on the Fire Department to keep us safe. The Manhattan Firefighters Union Local 2275 and the Manhattan Sunflower Lions Club have teamed up to give 24 new fire safety books to our children’s collection. Our thanks to Firefighter Wade McKinley for coordinating the donation. New books include Being safe With Fire, Mighty Machines: Fire Trucks and Rescue Vehicles and Safe Kids: Fire Safety (bilingual), with more to arrive soon. These new books have big, bright photographs and lots of important safety information for families. Recommended by Victoria
