by Maria Bostian
Genres: Children & Young Adult
Fraidy Brady is scared.
He doesn’t know if he will enjoy his class trip to the fire station. 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 that firefighters are important community helpers. In fact, Brady may even grow up to be a firefighter someday!
Fire and Life Safety Educator Maria Bostian shows young children in her Fraidy Brady series that they can face their fears and explore the possibilities of their world.
