Fire! Fire! - a safety poem for kids
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.
