Book Review – New Book – Playing with Fire by Sylvia Yordanova

My Rating - Fourstar

Playing with Fire is a children’s book about fire safety in the woods.  Bart the bear goes hiking with his friends.  He is careless with matches and with fires he lights, ignoring the advice on fire safety he receives from his friends because he is irritated at being told what to do.  Naturally, his fire gets out of control, and a serious disaster is only narrowly averted.

I wanted a hot dog so I lit a fire and threw the match into the bushes.

“Hey Bart,” Charlie yelled at me, “don’t you know you should never do that!”

“Do what?”

“Throw away a lighted match in the forest.”

Yordanova, Sylvia, Playing with Fire, Kindle edition, p. 6

This would make a good book for young readers – probably anyone who has been reading for about a year.  Less if they are proficient readers.  It could also be read to younger children.

The cover art is fairly representative of the artwork in the book.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
