Getting Ready For Emergencies - What Would YOU Do?
The importance of emergency preparedness is driven home for preteens in "The Tree House Tales" a story that puts readers into the action when they are asked to make decisions for the main character. Should Eric get involved in his family's project -- assembling their emergency supply kit -- or help his friends paint their tree house? More decisions have to be made when Eric finds himself in situations that may or may not be emergencies and is unsure how to act. Throughout, preteens see how their choices affect their own and their family's safety during an emergency. They also learn what goes into a good emergency supply kit; the elements of an emergency plan; and that no matter where they live, they need to be prepared. 16 pages, 5 1/2" x 8". Ages 9-11.
