2nd Random Act of Publicity: 2011

2nd Random Act of Publicity: 2011

For my 2nd random act of PR this week, I want to plug a new book called THE GOOD FIRE HELMET written by Tim Hoppey and beautifully illustrated by my good buddy Lori McElrath-Eslick. (See the cover below, and you’ll understand why I said “beautifully illustrated!”)

This book is particularly timely as Tim Hoppey is a firefighter and was a first-responder at the World Trade Center disaster.

The story makes a great read-aloud for students in 1st through 4th grade. The plot is about two brothers and how one finds the inner strength to save the other.  Enjoy it this week as we approach the anniversary of 9/11.
