October heralds Fire Prevention Week at Jessica’s school. For Jessica, who is capable of worrying about just about anything, information about fire safety skyrockets her anxiety level. Each wise tip--from installing smoke detectors to having a family escape plan--is reported at dinner as Jessica presses her family into a fire-conscious mode. Ellen Archer sympathizes with Jessica’s concern. She portrays Jessica with angst as fire safety unlocks a host of worries and mirrors her confidence as she takes action to create a safe home. Archer’s supporting characters project parental understanding or sibling edge. Archer’s pacing leaves time to savor the droll illustrations in the accompanying book.
