Don't Be Afraid Children's Book

Don't Be Afraid Children's Book

My project is called "Don't Be Afraid." It's a children's book to help raise awareness that Firefighters, EMT's and Paramedics are there to help in stressful situations. The story and colorful illustrations allow for children see and understand the gear and tools emergency workers use. As an EMT I have seen many things I wish I hadn't. It's just the nature of the job. Sometimes our emergency calls involve children. Whether it be a car accident, fire, or other type of emergency - its all very scary to a child. I've heard of many instances over the years where children will hide from emergency workers in fear during an emergency. Our gear, and tools can be very intimidating to adults, let alone children. When a child hides or acts out defensively from fear, it could (and has) cost them their life. With the book "Don't Be Afraid" I hope to help educate preschool and elementary aged children, that it is OK to be nervous, but not to hide from emergency workers. The book explains how firefighters are dressed, what they sound like and look like. It also explains what type of tools they may have with them, as some of them are intimidating. The book also explains what an EMT or Paramedic do. It goes over all of the tools medical personnel may need. Backboards, collars, bandages and splints are often very scary to a child. They can sometimes think this stuff will hurt them. Especially when they are separated from Mom and Dad. "Don't Be Afraid" can help make children understand the process during an emergency, which will make it a little less stressful for them.For those that pledge, you will receive the following awards per dollar amount:For a pledge of $10, you will receive a PDF copy of the book including illustrations.For a pledge of $25, you will have you name printed on the special "I Pledged" page in the back of the book and receive a PDF copy of the book including illustrations.For a pledge of $50, you will have your name printed on the special "I Pledged" page in the back of the book, and will also receive 1 autographed copy.For a pledge of $100, you will have your name printed on the special "I Pledged" page in the back of the book, and will also receive 2 autographed copies.For a pledge of $500, you will have your name printed on the special "I Pledged" page in the back of the book, receive an autographed copy of the book, and 5 additional copies for a school of your choice.
