Safe Shelter

When their home is destroyed in a wildfire, a family must leave everything behind. In lyrical language, SAFE SHELTER highlights the many people who help during and after perilous situations. Dual-narratives connect at the end, emphasizing the personal impact of natural disasters.

“Safe Shelter” is a 210 word picture book that describes the aftermath and those who help during a wildfire. Given the potentially disturbing subject matter, there is an optional foreword (100 words) to guide reading/discussion, in addition to back matter (300 words) that describes the real wildfire and family connection of the author/illustrator. This book will appeal to children who seek comfort in understanding natural disasters.
