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.
Thanks Sarah!, my 4-year-old class really loved your book.

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 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!

“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
