Description
"Just in time for the 60th anniversary of the blaze that changed American fire laws, The School's on Fire! follows the path of the December 1958 fire that killed 92 kids and 3 teachers at Our Lady of the Angels School in Chicago. Recounted in a fast-paced, blow-by-blow and classroom-by-classroom narrative, the tragedy is made accessible to kids by focusing on the survivors' stories of courage, quick thinking, and luck. Informed by interviews with survivors and including a useful "In Case of Fire" appendix, this book combines a dramatic tale of survival with inspiring examples and practical information for kids facing dangerous situations. Including compelling historic photos, informative sidebars, resources for further learning, and source notes, The School's on Fire! is an invaluable addition to any student's bookshelf"--,Provided by publisher.
