Sarah, thank you so much for talking to our class.  I shared your book with our 3-year-old class, and gave our director your card for next year’s fire safety week.  Thanks.

Thanks so much!  Your story and generosity have made me re-think my home safety with my toddler!

Sarah, Thank you for sharing your experience with us.  My preschool class loved Bernie Burn.  They couldn’t stop talking about him.  I can’t tell you how many Bernie Burn coloring pictures we now have hanging up. Thanks again.

Mrs. Cruz,

Thank you so much for coming to speak to the children yesterday. They really enjoyed your visit and understood your message. Your book is fantastic!
We would definitely like to have you speak to the children next year during fire prevention week, if you'd be interested.

Dear Sarah,

We want to thank you again for coming in to share your story and visuals with the children. They are still talking about 'Bernie Burn' and if we cook or talk about anthing hot - they remind themselves about him. You definitely made an impression - a positive one!! We wish you all the best!

Thank you, Sarah, for coming out to London Bridge. The children enjoyed the book and information - they were quite attentive! Best of luck promoting it.

“This was wonderful,” said Cathy Costantino, owner of Friends House. “the children are always really interested in this kind of information and they like to pass it around.” Costantino said she was certain the children would spread the word about Bernie Burn to parents and other children at home.

To whom it may concern:

On May 11th I ordered Bernie Burn to be sent to my daughter in Virginia for our granddaughter. From the day she received my daughter tells me that our grandchild could not be kept away from this book. She kept going over and over the pages. She is 2 years old. My daughter says that it is a great learning tool. She wonders if others are available in other subjects. If so would like to know about them.
Hopefully, there will be more of this type of educational material developed locally.

Thank you.

Bernie Burn arrived today and I really like the book and I know my Grandson (Mr. Know it all) will be fascinated. Great job.
