When my boys were little they were fascinated with anyone in uniform. They loved talking to policemen and firemen. Those men and women were heroes in my boys’ eyes. I think it’s important for our little ones to know who the people are in their communities who are there to keep them safe. Here is a small list of books about community helpers that they are sure to enjoy.
