Fire! Fire! - a safety poem for kids

Updated on January 15, 2017

Easy to read children's poem

, Fire! Fire! - I see fire

I should not ever touch

Matches, Lighters, Candlesticks

Can hurt me very much

Fire is used for cooking

A barbeque or two

It's sometimes there

To keep us warm

When we are cold right through

So never touch a fire

As only adults know

That little kids

With little hands

Can burn their fingers so

Your child will enjoy learning about danger

You can see the little boy, is walking towards a stove(Oven). The flames are rising high, inside the door of the stove.

It helps the child reading to understand, that it is hot. As some stove's are electric, that may become a good topic for discussion with your child. Even though they can not see the flames, it would still be hot.

As you can see, if the little boy gets any closer, he will burn his hands.

While you are reading, ask your child what they think would happen, if the boy had burnt his hands.

Read it to them often as a small child and they will think twice, before touching anything hot.

I wrote this poem as a way to help parents. I hope you find it helpful and would be very grateful, for any comments you may have.
