In a kindergarten classroom somewhere in the world the fire drill bell sounds and the children know exactly what to do. This simply written with very clear and direct instructions about what to do when the fire drill alarm sounds, will resonate with children through words and pictures. The simplicity of the text is complemented by the thoughtful paper illustrations. On page one two diverse young ladies wear frowns as they each pull on one side of the same doll. Brightly patterned clothing adds a feel of multi-culti and gives a brightness to the important learning. "Don't run." "Say your name." The step by step instructions are given firmly but kindly. "Take your place on the rug. Get a sticker. Get a hug." Warm and a great read aloud for the classroom. 32 pages ages 4-8
