Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Marilyn Courtot

"After listening to a presentation in class about fire safety, the students are asked to go home and practice EDITH which stands for Exit Drills in the Home. Todd takes his assignment very seriously, and he makes a sketch of his house. Using pens and markers, he marks the primary and secondary escape routes for each room. He also creates a meeting place for the family so it will be easy to know in an emergency that everyone is safe and accounted for. Todd and his sister practice fire safety routines at home and Mom joins in. When the fire alarm really does start beeping, they all wonder where Dad is and what is really happening. The book contains a very good lesson about home fire safety, and the recommended activity is one that should be undertaken in each home. Kids would do well to share this book with parents and have the entire family work on a plan. The last page offers a few definitions, three books to read, and web sites that FactHound has checked out. Part of the “Read-It Readers” series, this is a Green Level in the Social Studies category." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
