Many readers will identify with Jessica's anxiety about fire safety and giggle at her botched attempts to remember her fire safety anthem. Illustrations match the tone of the book, with squiggly line drawings and free flowing watercolors. The humor lies with Jessica's fretful face and earnest attempts to educate her family. This delightful and instructive story is perfect for Fire Safety Month in October and throughout the rest of the year.
