Hooray for Our Heroes!
August 18, 2003
Children and families celebrated heroes everywhere with a special storytime and visit from some local heroes. Take a look!
Read to your hero! Gila reads a story to Chicago Firefighter Mark Repel.
|"Mel," a Rhodesian Ridgeback, is a four-legged hero who works with his
owner, Linda Forman. Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very gentle, but their
keen awareness of danger makes them great watch dogs. Ridgebacks get
their name from the raised hair that grows along the spine.
|Firefighter Repel reads Michael Rex's My Fire Engine and shares fire safety tips with kids and parents.|
