My five year old son Alex loves Sparky the Fire Dog. NFPA recently released a new Sparky storybook that Lauren Backstrom posted about on Monday. As a special birthday gift for Alex this month, I obtained a hot-off-the-press copy and had Sparky autograph the inside cover.
Today when Alex arrived at his preschool, the first thing he did was announce to his friends and teacher that he received a special Sparky the Fire Dog® story and that it was signed by "Sparky" himself! The teacher recommended he share the book next week during their weekly "Sharing Day." He was also proud to say that he would be coming to NFPA soon to see Sparky during the annual Fire Prevention Week™ activities for staff and their families.
Do you have any anecdotes you can share about kids loving Sparky the Fire Dog?

He's a great pal to keep around
