Organized by the Academy of American Poets, National Poetry Month, which takes place every April, is designed to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry. It’s been celebrated in the United States and Canada since the 1990s.

The Sparky School House has the free eBook, Rescue Dogs, Firefighting Heroes, and Science Facts, which includes the poem, Sparky the Fire Dog Says Stay Fire-Safe!” The poem reminds children in a fun and entertaining way about escape    planning, what to do when the smoke alarm sounds, and the importance of waiting outside at the designated meeting place.

Kids and adults who want to create their own fire safety poems during National Poetry Month or any other time of the year can send one to the parent page of the Sparky web site.
