The School's on Fire!

ebook
Written 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 Chicago's Our Lady of the Angels School. Recounted in a fast-paced, blow-by-blow, classroom-by-classroom narrative, the tragedy is made accessible by focusing on the survivors' stories of courage, quick thinking, and luck. Author Rebecca C. Jones draws heavily from interviews with those who were there and includes compelling historic photos of the tragedy. The School's on Fire! finishes with a useful "What to Do in Case of Fire" appendix with practical information for kids facing dangerous situations. Additional informative sidebars, resources for further learning, and source notes make this an invaluable addition to any student's bookshelf.
