Giveaway: Newly Released Picture Book CLOSED

10/9-10/15 is National Fire Safety Week, and the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) mascot, Sparky, also turns 60.  To commemorate this milestone, Sparky stars in his first ever picture book, Sparky: The Fire Dog


In the 35-page hardcover book written by Emmy-award winning author, Don Hoffman, Sparky The Fire Dog narrates a story of being a hero in his neighborhood while also packing the book with useful fire safety tips.


The book is perfect for young audiences at home or to share with in the classroom.  Older elementary school aged children will also enjoy reading the book on their own.
