Fraidy Brady is scared!

He doesn’t know if he will enjoy his class trip to the Fancy Feline History Museum. The sights and sounds scare him so much that he tries to find a way to get out of the trip. But once he is there, Fraidy Brady realizes that there is nothing to be afraid of after all, and he learns important tips for stranger safety. In fact, Brady ends up leading the class in their first Safety Day!

In this first book of her new Fraidy Brady series, Fire & Life Safety Educator Maria Bostian shows young children how they can face their fears and explore the possibilities of their world.


“Fraidy Brady” is a relatable story that teaches and reminds young readers the basics of “stranger danger” in an engaging story. The charming main character is put to the test determining rather or not the strangers he encounters are safe or unsafe. In doing so he overcomes some big fears and learns to trust his heart! This is a must read for elementary age students.
