The children in this kindergarten class know what to do when there's a fire drill. They put down their toys and get in line. They file out of the building, slowly and calmly. They listen to the teacher. And when the teacher says "Okay!" the children know everything is safe. Back they go to their classroom to learn and play.
Bouncy and bright, this simple rhyming text guides youngsters through all the steps of a fire drill.
Fire Drill is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
