A former homeschool dad (now a grandpa) has created a nice book series and website about firefighters and other good deed doers. The stories emphasize service to others and devotion to duty with the catch phrase “Glad to do it!” Download a free picture book, coloring pages, learn about fire safety and more at GladToDoIt.net. Buy the paperback and Kindle editions at Amazon.com. Please read the author’s message below for more info.

Subject: Free Children’s Picture Book
I am the author of the Uncle Rocky, Fireman Series of children’s picture books. My latest project is to make available book #1 “Fire!” as a FREE book for Christmas. You may download Uncle Rocky, Fireman #1 Fire! in Nook, Kindle, and computer formats from www.GladToDoIt.net.
Uncle Rocky, Fireman is a 32 page illustrated picture book designed to be read to children 7 and under. In book #1 “Fire!”, Uncle Rocky arrives at his first fire and is confronted by a frantic mother shouting, “Save my Baby, Save My Baby.” While his partners attack the fire Uncle Rocky, his heart pounding with the urgency of the situation, crawls through the upstairs searching for the baby trapped in her crib.
I told these stories to my two oldest boys (we had 5 children, 2 boys, 1 girl, 2 boys) as part of my homeschool duties.
If upon review, you feel the story is of value to your homeschool organization, please distribute it to them as you see fit. At the website, www.GladToDoIt.net, you will also find coloring page downloads and the opportunity to nominate your children for the Glad To Do It Club.
I hope you enjoy the book. I enjoyed telling it to my boys.
